Hospital Appointment During Junior Doctors/nurses strike

I have a hospital appointment for an Echo on Wednesday which is day one of the Junior doctors second 72 hour strike. I just wondered has anyone else had an appointment during a strike and how you felt about walking past a picket line? I do not like crowds at the best of times and if they are shouting I will feel very uncomfortable.

    I personally refuse to cross picket lines, but I'd hope they don't shout at patients.

    There's a huge difference between a scab and someone who needs their health checked/procedure done.

    Aspiring to lot's of things but one step at a time, Crohn's sorted, sorting ADHD, then life to sort!
    Prefers they/them but am fine with he/him
