Nurses to be balloted on new proposals to combat overcrowding

Nurses will be balloted on new proposals aimed at tackling overcrowding over the next three weeks.

A planned strike by members of the Irish Nurses and Midwives Organisation on Thursday has been called off to allow the measures go to a vote.

The new proposals include weekly meetings between hospital CEO's and nursing representatives to discuss overcrowded emergency departments.

However, the INMO has warned if the measures agreed are not put in place strikes will be back on the table.
