Royal College of Nursing not taking industrial action at Barts Health hospitals

November 21, 2022

Members of the Royal College of Nursing, employed at Barts Health hospitals (including Whipps Cross University Hospital), will not take industrial action this winter as the number of staff members taking part in the strike ballot did not meet the workplace legal threshold for their vote to count.

Other unions may yet vote in favour of industrial action, so Barts Health will continue to develop contingency plans to keep patients safe over the coming months in anticipation of operational challenges, including seasonal ‘flu and any resurgence of Covid.
