HSE & Dept. of Health Must Prevent Doctors Strike Say Irish Medical Organisation
The Irish Medical Organisation says the HSE and Department of Health must engage in urgent negotiations to prevent a doctors strike.
The IMO announced yesterday that over 97 per cent of Non-Consultant Hospital Doctors balloted had voted for industrial action up to and including strike action.
NCHDs say they are working unsafe and illegal hours, are not being paid for all hours worked and are calling for the cost of training to be lowered…
They also say that the HSE has failed to ensure that all NCHDs receive their full entitlement to annual leave and study leave.
Speaking to RedFM News, IMO NCHD committee member Dr Aidan Coffey says the union will issue notice of industrial action if the HSE are not prepared to engage.
RedFM News has contacted the HSE for comment.
