National industrial action on Monday, 13 October from 7am-11am

Birmingham and Solihull Mental Health NHS Foundation Trust is reassuring its service users and carers over national industrial action planned for Monday, 13 October.
The four-hour strike from 7am-11am involves members of health and public sector unions, Unite, Unison and Ucatt.
John Short, Chief Executive of the Trust said: “We have been working with the trades unions to agree what are essential services and are maintaining these at safe staffing standards. We cannot promise there will be no disruption to our services but we can promise to do all we can to minimise any impact on our service users.  
“Our number one priority will be to maintain essential services for the patients in our care.  It is possible that some of our outpatient services such as Monday morning clinics may be affected but are doing our utmost to minimise disruption.”
Anyone with concerns or queries about an appointment should call the telephone number given in their appointment letter, or their care co-ordinator.
Visitors to the Trust’s sites between 7am-11am are also advised that there will be union picket lines at some locations during the period of industrial action.
