Impending Irish Nurses and Midwives Industrial Action

Information for patients and our Mater Community

The impending industrial action on Wednesday 30 January 2019 will have significant impact on the services of the Mater Hospital.

On the 30 January 2019 and on any subsequent days of industrial action, the hospital will be providing emergency services only. All other services will be postponed, including but not limited to elective surgery, out-patient clinics, minor injuries unit service and day services. If you have an appointment or a procedure scheduled for Wednesday 30 January, please be aware that you may be contacted by the hospital in the coming days as your appointment may be rescheduled.

The Mater Hospital will endeavour to keep all our patients informed in a timely manner however we rely on national negotiations for updates and can only plan based on the updates we receive.

The level of disruption resultant from this industrial action underlines the significant role nursing professions play in this hospital. 

The hospital will keep this page updated over the coming days.
