Information for service users re: London Ambulance service strike action

Date: 20 December 2022

Ambulance

You may be aware that London Ambulance Service staff will be on strike on Wednesday, 21 December. The strike will run from 12 noon to midnight on Wednesday.

It means that Ambulance crews will only respond to Category 1 or 2 calls which cover the most urgent life-threatening injuries or illnesses.

If you or someone you know has a life-threatening mental or physical health condition, then you should still call 999. For less serious physical health problems, please call 111.

For other non-life-threatening mental health situations, please call our Crisis Line as usual on 0800 151 0023 - the 24/7 crisis telephone service is the first point of contact for people who are in mental health crisis and who live in Barnet, Enfield and Haringey.

We are working hard with our health care partners to ensure that anyone who needs emergency help will continue to receive it during this day of action.
