The HSE says it will do everything it can to restore normal service following the suspension of this week's nurses strike.

Outpatient appointments are set to go ahead as planned and patients with appointments for today, tomorrow and Thursday are advised to attend as scheduled.

Surgical patients will be contacted by their hospital if their procedure is going ahead.

Nurses could get pay rises of between 2.5 and 7% as part of the Labour Court deal which will be balloted on within the next month.

Finance Minister Paschal Donohoe refused to be drawn on the details before briefing his Cabinet colleagues but he confirmed he would be recommending acceptance.

Meanwhile patient representatives say the industrial relations system has failed the people of Ireland with the length of time it's taken to get to this point, and lessons should be learned to ensure it doesn't happen again.
