Nurses and midwives will go on strike on January 30 for 24 hours. The Irish Nurses and Midwives Organisation has warned that if the dispute over pay and staffing levels remains unresolved there will be further 24 hour strikes on February 5 and February 7 and then February 12, 13 and 14. The strike will see INMO members withdraw their labour for the 24 hours providing only life-saving care and emergency response teams. âThe HSE simply cannot recruit enough nurses and midwives on these wages. Until that changes, the health service will continue to go understaffed and patient care will be compromised.
