As has reported in the news this morning, hospital patients have been told to bring their own sandwiches with them to hospital visits as health support staff go on strike.

10-thousand HSE support staff have downed tools for 24 hours in a row over pay rises.

What Does This Strike Mean For Patients?

Disruption to catering services means some patients will be served soup and sandwiches rather than a full meal.

Thousands of surgeries, inpatient procedures and outpatient appointments are expected to be cancelled today.
