The Royal College of Nursing (RCN) has advised us that they are taking industrial action on Wednesday 18 and Thursday 19 of January 2023. As a result, a number of RCN nurses that work at HRCH will be on strike on these days. 

If you have an appointment that is likely to be affected by this action, we will contact you and rearrange your appointment as a priority.

We are very sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.

The Richmond Urgent Treatment Centre at Teddington Memorial Hospital will only be able to treat urgent cases during this time. All other patients will be triaged and redirected.
