Nurses protest in Sligo today

Nurses and midwives from the region will hold a lunchtime protest today in Sligo against an increase in fees.

Members of the INMO, SIPTU and the Psychiatric Nurses Association say no services will be affected by the demonstrations.

The protests are scheduled to  take place in Sligo, Dublin, Cork and Drogheda.

Nurses have called for the proposed 50% hike to the annual retention fee to be scrapped, saying it is unfairly targetting frontline staff.
