Nursing industrial action is now suspended

The Irish Nurses and Midwives Organisation and Psychiatric Nurses Association have suspended industrial action that was due to take place on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday this week. 

Where patients were informed by the hospital of their outpatient appointment being cancelled this week due to industrial action, they should now attend as per their original outpatient appointment. If patients are unable to attend their appointment, there is no need to contact the hospital as the appointment will automatically be rescheduled.

Our Smithfield Rapid Injury Unit will also be open as normal.
