Healy supports nurses strike action

Another Tipperary TD has given his backing to the proposed nurses strike.

Former HSE manager Seamus Healy says he is fully supportive of the action by the INMO and PNA.

The Independent TD says the unions haven’t taken the decision lightly but agrees that pay & conditions, patient safety and the provision of a proper health service are worth backing.

Deputy Healy says the Health Ministers stance to the nurses claims doesn’t stand up.
