Update on Unite the Union Industrial Action

07 June 2013

A spokesperson for Yorkshire Ambulance Service NHS Trust said:

“Currently, of the staff who are rostered to be on duty, 36 individuals are taking part in the industrial action (equates to less than 1% of our total workforce).

“The strike action is having a negligible impact on services but we continue to monitor the situation and our robust plans remain in place throughout the 12-hour period. Our focus will be on taking steps to maintain operational cover to sustain effective and safe services for patients calling upon us for assistance.

“The Trust is reminding the public to use the service wisely and asks people to only call 999 for an ambulance in an emergency when it is obvious that someone has a life-threatening or serious illness or injury.  Anyone requiring advice or treatment for a non-emergency situation or minor ailment considers options such as self-care, a visit to a local pharmacist, GP surgery or walk-in centre."
