Consultant and Non-Consultant Hospital Doctor belonging to the Irish medical Organisation have voted overwhelmingly in favour of strike action.

It marks the first time ever that Consultants and NCHDs have voted together for industrial action.

The IMO says 94% of members vote in favour of the move.

The Organisation expects that members will strike early in the New Year.

In a statement, the IMO says "doctors can no longer tolerate the decimation of health services in Ireland, and the life-threatening effect this is having on patients throughout the country."

The IMO is calling for an end to pay inequality, which it says is making it difficult to recruit consultants.
