Health unions are today meeting with Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt as the government bids to avoid next week’s strike.

Several unions have been invited to the meeting ahead of next Friday’s planned action over the government’s refusal to implement the 1% pay rise recommended by the independent NHS Pay Review Body.

Members of GMB, UCATT, UNISON and Unite are planning to walk out for twelve hours, followed by a work to rule until February 24th.
