Full list of NHS hospitals where nurses are on strike today – are you affected?

THOUSANDS of nurses took to pickets across the country this morning to fight for better wages and working conditions.

It comes after the nurses were only offered a 4.75 per cent pay rise – well below what was being asked.

Today marks the second day of the nurses’ strike as General Secretary of the Royal College of Nursing Pat Cullen visits pickets in the north of England.

She told strikers this morning: “I don’t think we’ll ever get used to it, but it’s the right thing to do.”

But she added that nurses may have “no choice” but to go on strike in January if the government doesn’t come to the table.

Cullen explained that the strikes had not been coordinated with other unions, adding that nurses were “sorry” that patient care was disrupted today.

“Any disruption to a healthcare system as vulnerable as ours is something this government needs to look at really long and hard.

“The Prime Minister has to ask himself why nurses are doing this for the second time in their history,” she said, adding that he needed to meet with her to find a solution.

“We would negotiate with the government – ​​again we will not interfere if they don’t interfere. But we don’t have the opportunity because we can’t get down to a table to talk to the government,” she told BBC Radio 4.

The nurses’ strike comes just days before the emergency services strike in the UK today.

Eight in 10 ambulances will be delayed or not show up on strike, NHS bosses warn.

Meanwhile, the South West is likely to be the hardest hit part of England today as 13 employers join nurses’ strikes.

The region already has some of the worst ambulance and emergency room delays in the world.

The strike will result in 70,000 appointments, procedures and surgeries being canceled in England, Health Secretary Maria Caulfield has said.

She previously told Sky News: “Cancer surgeries are being closed in these 44 trusts in England. We estimate that around 70,000 appointments, procedures and surgeries will be lost.”

Prime Minister Rishi Sunak had said the RCN’s demands – a 19 per cent hike worth £10bn – were “unaffordable”.

A nurse who went on strike outside Aintree University Hospital in Liverpool this morning said there was “so much pressure” on staff.

Lucy Savage, who qualified as a registered nurse in September, said workers needed “more money and more staff”.

The 21-year-old added: “We need patient safety. We’re overworked and underpaid, the NHS is in shambles.

“I don’t know how many times in the last four weeks I’ve gone home and said to my mother, ‘I’m not going to be a nurse for the rest of my life if this goes on.’

Strikes are allowed in maternity wards, intensive care units, transplant clinics and end-of-life care as long as there is at least one public holiday staffing level.

CEO Amanda Pritchard last week admitted there will be cancellations due to industrial action but said patients would be informed “sooner rather than later”.

Saffron Cordery, chief of NHS Providers, said: “The affected trusts will do everything they can to minimize the disruption to patients.”

Health Secretary Steve Barclay said: “The NHS has developed tried and tested plans to minimize disruption and ensure emergency services continue to function.”
