Staff employed by OCS, who deliver facilities management services at some of our sites have voted in favour of taking strike action today (Wednesday 29 June), tomorrow (Thursday 30 June) and Friday 1 July.

The majority of our sites are unaffected by the planned industrial action which impacts catering and cleaning services at eight sites:

  • Daisyfield Mill (Blackburn)
  • The Harbour (Blackpool)
  • The Mount (Accrington)
  • Balladen House (Rawtenstall)
  • Wesham Rehabilitation Unit (Wesham)
  • Ormskirk District General Hospital
  • Guild Lodge (Whittingham, Preston)

Patient care and safety is our priority and we would like to reassure you that have robust contingency plans in place to make sure patients will receive meals and our high standards of cleanliness and care will not suffer.

Our services will continue as normal during this period and patients and visitors should continue to attend as they usually would.
