Nurses have today initiated partial strike action that will last until the end of the week.

Nurses start five-day strike

 

The action was called by two of three unions representing nurses, with the action set to cause disruption to specialised services.

 

The strike, which has been termed illegal by the government, will affect services such as maternity wards, with at least ten said to be without nurses this week.

 

Nurses are calling for a reduction in working hours and in protest against a gradual increase in salaries.
