Health strike: Nurses start industrial action on pay and staffing

Industrial action by healthcare workers is intensifying as Northern Ireland's nurses take part in 24 hours of action. Health workers are staging industrial action in protest at pay and staffing levels which they claim are "unsafe".

In an unprecedented joint statement, the five health trusts said the action was likely to result in "a significant risk to patient safety".

Last week, the Royal College of Surgeons warned NI's healthcare system was "at the point of collapse". On Tuesday, members of the Royal College of Nursing (RCN) are refusing to do any work that is not directly related to patient care.

Full details and advice on current health care services can be found on the Health and Social Care Board website.
