The Chair of the Labour Court is hosting talks between nursing unions and the HSE this evening.

The Department of Health, Department of Public Expenditure and Reform, and the General Secretary of ICTU are also attending the discussions, aimed at avoiding a strike by 37,000 nurses on Wednesday.

The HSE has cancelled thousands of outpatient appointments and elective surgeries and is warning of widespread disruption to health services on the day.

This is the first of a series of scheduled strikes over the coming weeks, as nurses want increases in pay, and recruitment and retention issues addressed.
