London Ambulance industrial action – Maternity services

19 December 2022

There is strike action planned by staff working for London Ambulance Service on Wednesday 21 December, between noon and midnight. Ambulances will not be available to take you to hospital, unless it is a life-threatening emergency. 

Our maternity services will be running as usual. 

Please plan how you would come to hospital on that day if you needed to.  

If you have any worries, or think you’re in labour, please contact us for advice as early as possible on 020 8934 2802.

If you are planning a homebirth around this time, your midwife will speak to you about what this means for your care. 

Tell us how we are doing we'd love to have your opinion
