Newham General radiographers to strike on Monday
Radiographers working at Newham General will join their colleagues across the country in strike action on Monday.
Members of the Society of Radiographers will walk out for four hours from 9am after the government rejected a one per cent pay rise.
Emergency and urgent care will continue to be provided but pre-booked appointments and procedures may be affected.
Staff also plan to work to rule for the remainder of next week, taking scheduled breaks and not working unpaid overtime.
Monday’s strike will be radiographers’ first since 1982.

The Society’s chief executive officer, Richard Evans, said: “The last thing that radiographers want is to hurt the people that they serve. Steps have been taken to minimise the impact on patients.
“This disagreement between NHS staff and the government has been going on for a long time and radiographers have lost patience with an employer that they feel does not value the hard work that they do.”
