Nurses across England are stepping out of the way this week over pay and patient safety.

Around 55 hospital trusts will be short of nurses on Wednesday and Thursday when members of the Royal College of Nursing (RCN) take industrial action.

RCN chief Pat Cullen said: “Instead of negotiating, Prime Minister Rishi Sunak has again opted for a strike. We are doing this in a desperate bid to get him and Ministers to bail out the NHS.

“The only credible solution is to address the tens of thousands of unfilled positions – patient care is suffering like never before.

“My olive branch to the government – asking them to meet me halfway and start negotiations – is still there. You should grab it.’

Ms Cullen referred to her earlier proposal that the union would accept a 10% pay rise, over the 19% she had asked for before the government rejected it.

But the government has rejected that offer too, insisting it has proposed a fair wage agreement and accepting the recommendations of the independent wage verification body “completely” – by up to 9.3%.

Thousands of nurses in trusts across England and Wales left last month, prompting the cancellation of thousands of hospital appointments and surgeries.

Certain members of the RCN are exempt from industrial action and will go to work even on strike days to ensure patient safety.

Nurses working in chemotherapy, dialysis, intensive care units, neonatal critical care, pediatric critical care and pediatric emergency departments will not go on Wednesday and Thursday.

Employers have less staff to manage in other services.

Yesterday the RCN announced two new strike dates over the next month – 6 and 7 February, drawing more NHS trusts than ever to take part.

The decision to strike on February 6 is set to coincide with the 10th anniversary of Robert Francis’ inquiry into the Mid Staffordshire NHS Foundation Trust, which highlighted the impact of carer shortages on patient care and excess deaths.

The investigation revealed the neglect of hundreds of patients at Stafford Hospital between 2005 and 2009.

There have been reports of some elderly people being left in their own urine, unable to eat, drink or take essential medication.

In a letter to Health Secretary Steve Barclay last week, Mr Francis and Patients’ Association chief executive Rachel Power described the current strain on the NHS and excessive death rates as “mid staffs playing out at a national level, if not worse”.
