Nurses, clinical officers threaten to down tools

nurses and clinical officers threatened to go on strike
Public hospitals could be thrown into turmoil next month after nurses and clinical officers threatened to go on strike to push for better working conditions and higher pay. Nurses issued a notice to the Health Cabinet Secretary, governors and the Salaries Remuneration Commission, saying they will down their tools from December 10 until an agreement reached after a five-month strike last year is implemented to the full. The clinical officers, on the other hand, said they will boycott work in two weeks to push the National Hospital Insurance Fund to recognise their prescription for procedures such as CT scans and X-rays.
