Nurses strikes 2022: The London and UK NHS trusts where RCN members will walk out over pay

Nurses have voted to strike in the majority of NHS employers in a row over pay, the Royal College of Nursing announced on Wednesday.

Strike action will take place across 12 NHS employers in the capital, the union confirmed on Wednesday, sparking fears that patients could face disruption to operations and appointments.

More than 300,000 members were urged by the Royal College of Nursing (RCN) to vote for strike action in the union’s biggest strike ballot and its first in history.

However, members were balloted at a hospital level and each trust had to clear a 50 per cent turnout to participate, meaning that strike action and service levels will vary greatly according to region.

When will nurses go on strike?

Industrial action is expected to begin before the end of this year and the RCN’s mandate to organise strikes runs until early May 2023, six months after members finished voting.

Where have nurses voted to go on strike?

The Standard looks at which NHS employers nurses have voted for strike action in each region.
