Thousands of patients could have their appointments or surgeries canceled or delayed when nurses go on strike for two days next month.

Healthcare staff from more than 150 NHS organizations across England, Wales and Northern Ireland are set to picket the lines in the first nationwide walkout on Thursday 15 and Tuesday 20 December.

Their union, the Royal College of Nursing (RCN), said it was going on strike after the government “turned down” its offer of formal and detailed negotiations following an unprecedented vote on action for more pay.

In Scotland, union bosses backed off calling for strike action after the government there reopened pay negotiations with the NHS.

The RCN says emergency care will be maintained during strikes to preserve life or prevent permanent disability, but non-urgent care will be reduced.

Nurses are campaigning for a pay rise of 5% above RPI inflation to overcome what they say are pay cuts in real terms. It says thousands of “exhausted, underpaid care staff” have left the profession.

The RCN says that despite a pay rise of around £1,400 a summer, experienced nurses are 20% worse off in real terms due to successive awards below inflation.

Figures show job vacancies are at a record 47,000, meaning staff are stretched and regularly working past the end of shifts.

Other health unions are also voting workers for industrial action. Midwives and physiotherapists are also voting to strike, while a junior doctor ballot opens in the new year.

The RCN union said it will announce next week which NHS employers will be hit, but this is the full list of hospitals and trusts where nurses have voted for action and which could suffer:
