Staff at Hull and East Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust are preparing for the impact of industrial action next month, after junior doctors voted overwhelmingly in favour of strike action.

The result of the British Medical Association (BMA) ballot announced today has shown 98% of junior doctors to be in favour of full strike action, from a 76% turnout.

Provisional dates for industrial action have already been announced by the BMA, namely 1st December, when emergency cover only would be provided for a 24hr period, and 8th and 16th December when full strike action would take place between 8am and 5pm.
