Nurse strike Q&A: How a lot money do they need? When will walk-outs occur? And how will sufferers be affected? All the large questions answered as Royal College of Nursing confirms ‘historic’ motion 

NHS nurses will stroll off the job this winter, the Royal College of Nursing (RCN) has confirmed, because the union launched the outcomes of its historic strike motion poll.

The RCN is arguing for an inflation-busting pay rise for its NHS nurses amid studies workers are being compelled to make use of meals banks or quitting the occupation fully because of the rising value of dwelling. 

Here, MailOnline solutions your whole key questions surrounding the strikes and what occurs subsequent. 

What is the Royal College of Nursing? 

The RCN is Britain’s largest nursing unio. Its membership consists of each nurses of all specialties — from the final nurses working in NHS hospitals to specialists like psychological well being, most cancers and paediatric nurses. 

Its members additionally embrace another well being and care workers teams like midwives and healthcare assistants. 

Why are members putting? 

The RCN argues that its members working within the NHS usually are not paid sufficient and this contributing to staffing issues within the well being service. 

While this argument has been made for years, hovering inflation has exacerbated these considerations.

There have been studies of nurses struggling to pay their payments or leaving the occupation for jobs in sectors like retail. 

On October 6, the union launched a historic poll asking 300,000 members working within the NHS throughout the UK if they’d on taking strike motion. 

Ballots closed on November 2 and the outcomes have been revealed at this time. 

What was the outcome?

In complete, 178 NHS organisations are resulting from take strike motion throughout the UK after assembly the authorized thresholds for strike motion.

This contains all the NHS employers in Northern Ireland and Scotland and all bar one in Wales. In England, this contains 130 NHS organisations. 

The forms of NHS our bodies impacted by strike motion contains NHS trusts and well being boards which handle hospitals, ambulance trusts, and Integrated Care Bodies which broadly handle NHS companies in areas of England.

Of the full organisations that returned a legitimate strike poll in England 50 of them are acute NHS trusts that present hospital care and 6 out of 11 ambulance trusts. 

What does the RCN need?

The union desires nurses to get a pay rise 5 per cent above inflation, which at the moment sits round 12 per cent. 

This would grant the common nurse, who earns roughly £35,600 annually, an additional £6,000 yearly. 

This is much above the Government’s supply of about 4 per cent.

So what occurs now? 

The RCN is anticipated to unveil additional particulars of the strike motion within the weeks to return.

This will embrace which elements of the NHS shall be affected by strike motion on what days, in addition to for the way lengthy. 

Previous strike motion by nurses in Northern Ireland in 2019/20 noticed nurses stroll off the roles from nearly all companies minus these offering life saving care in 12-hour blocks.

I’ve an operation scheduled at my native NHS hospital within the subsequent few months, may it’s cancelled?

If your appointment is scheduled it may very well be canceled by strike motion as it’s in all probability not categorized as emergency or pressing care. 

If a person appointment is cancelled or not will rely if the date falls on a strike motion day and is a type of the place nurses are strolling off the job.

Another issue is how lengthy the dispute between the Government and the union runs.

Some appointments not on strike days may additionally be delayed as extra pressing procedures have been cancelled must be prioritised.

For Wales, at the least 50 per cent of the eligible membership should vote however solely a easy majority is required to find out the outcome.

Northern Ireland has the least restrictions on strike motion ballots, solely a easy majority of those that vote is required with no minimal turnout threshold.

Won’t a strike put sufferers at risk?

Unlike different workers teams who take strike motion, nurses are required by legislation to keep up a minimal staffing degree to maintain sufferers secure.

Therefore, some nurses shall be exempt from the strike to offer this minimal degree of service.

The precise numbers remaining on the job shall be negotiated regionally between the RCN and every NHS Trust/Board.

What type of NHS companies may very well be scrapped?

However, the RCN argues that improved pay is required to assist enhance staffing within the NHS which is taken into account to be one of many principal causes contributing to lengthy elective care ready instances within the first place. 

If some nurses are nonetheless working what is the level of a strike?

While life-saving care shall be supplied, a nursing strike is more likely to result in cancellation of a whole bunch of routine operations.

Are the strikes avoidable?

The RCN says the Government can cease the strikes if it agrees to fulfill their calls for on pay.

However, the Government has refused to even say it should meet with the union following the results of the poll. 

What is the NHS doing to organize for strike motion? 

At the beginning of November hospitals in England have been ordered to plan a military-style operation to organize for potential strike motion. 

Called Exercise Arctic Willow, the multi-day operation is designed to check their ‘preparedness’ for winter and can happen in mid-November.

This is an extension to the conventional routine winter preparedness workout routines carried out by trusts to organize for seasonal issues like a rise in flu admissions.
