NHS Radiographers Strike In Pay Dispute

Radiographers at Musgrave Park Hosptial in Belfast and Altnagelvin in L'Derry have held a strike in a dispute over pay.

The industrial action was taken by members of the Society of Radiographers for the first time in the organisations history.

A work stoppage was held from 9am until 1pm, to be accompanied by a work-to-rule policy for the rest of the week.

The strike is the latest in an ongoing series of industrial action by various NHS staff over a pay freeze, and the government's refusal to introduce a 1% pay rise for all NHS staff.
