What Does The Winter Nurse’s Strike Mean For You?

Nurses across the UK have voted to strike before the end of 2022 in a historic ballot.

The Royal College of Nursing [RCN], which represents nearly half a million nurses, has announced the first UK-wide strike in its 106-year history.

In Scotland and Northern Ireland, strike action was voted for in every service. In Wales it will take place in all but one health board. However, the turnout was too low in nearly half of NHS trusts in England for a strike to take place.

Nurses at many hospitals and NHS centres are set to take industrial action before Christmas and may continue striking until next May.
