Health unions invited to pay talks ahead of strikes next week

Health and Social Care Editor

Unions representing tens of thousands of NHS workers are considering an invitation from the government to enter formal pay talks ahead of more strikes next week.

That includes members of Unite, Unison and GMB – who have strikes planned next week.

Not included are the junior doctors who after meeting with the health secretary this morning, say they have no plans to cancel their 72-hour walkout in 11 days time.
