The NHS in Northern Ireland is “absolutely broken”, say nurses as they warn they face a winter strike.
The Royal College of Nursing (RCN) says its members are on track to start strike action by November 30 as the union accused politicians of failing to act on pay and patient safety concerns.
Rita Devlin, RCN (NI) director, said the organization had no choice but to elect members for strike action.
“I don’t understand why our public put up with the service they put up with because it’s unacceptable on every level,” she told BelTel.
