Nurses vote for 48-hour strike action during May bank holiday

Nurses in England have voted to stage more strike action at the start of May – after members of the Royal College of Nurses rejected their leadership’s recommendation to accept the latest Government pay offer.

It could also coincide with additional strikes from junior doctors.

NHS chiefs in England warned that further industrial action would end up putting staff under even more pressure – leaving the health service facing its most difficult challenge yet.
