18th January 2023

The Urgent Treatment Centre at Ripley Community Hospital will be closed tomorrow (19 January) as a precautionary measure as we cannot guarantee safe staffing levels due to the ongoing industrial action.

Urgent Treatment Centres at Buxton Hospital and Whitworth Hospital in Darley Dale will be open as usual tomorrow from 8am – 8pm, and Ilkeston Hospital’s Urgent Treatment Centre will open as usual at 8am but is likely to close at 6pm (rather than the usual 8pm), due to safe staffing levels.
