Nurse jobs threat in NI

10th October 2008

The public sector union Unison has threatened to call a strike if jobs cuts in the Health Service in Northern Ireland are forced through.

It is feared that some 700 nursing posts are under threat as part of wider plans to cut almost 2,500 health service jobs under a savings drive over the next three years. Unison believes that patient care would suffer under the move though Health Minister Michael McGimpsey wants to make savings of £344m in line with Stormont efficiency plans.
