Prime Minister urges health unions to rethink industrial action


Prime Minister Rishi Sunak has called for health unions to rethink industrial action this week. Nurses are going on strike tomorrow, and ambulance staff walk out on Wednesday. Mr Sunak said: “Well, I’m really disappointed to see that the unions are calling these strikes, particularly at Christmas, particularly when it has such an impact on people’s day-to-day lives with the disruption it causes and the impact on their health. “And I urge them to keep considering whether these strikes are really necessary and do everything they can to alleviate the impact that’s going to have on people and of course, the government, for its part, is being responsible in putting in place contingency measures to make sure we’re well-prepared to handle the disruption that.” #NHS #strikes #health #ambulance #nurses #nursing #cancer SUBSCRIBE to our YouTube channel for more videos: Follow us on Twitter: Like us on Facebook: Follow us on Instagram: For more content go to and download our apps: Apple: Android Sky News videos are now available in Spanish here/Los video de Sky News están disponibles en español aquí To enquire about licensing Sky News content, you can find more information here:
