Public health doctors are to strike for three days in January.

It follows a meeting of an Irish Medical Organisation committee today.

It comes after 94% of public health doctors voted in favour of industrial action.

The dispute centres on achieving parity with consultants in the health service.

A one day strike will take place on the 14th of January, followed by a two day strike on the 21st and 22nd of January.

Dr. Ina Kelly, Chair of the Public Health Committee of the IMO said: “as a doctor who has committed my career to public health and the improvement of health outcomes for the population I am deeply distressed that it has come to this. It really is time for Government to step up to the plate and recognise their own ethical obligations and to honour agreements”.
