I.M.O. To Meet With Department Of Health Over Doctor's Dispute

The Irish Medical Organisation is hopeful discussions with the Department of Health will resolve a dispute, which would have seen doctors go on strike this month.

Public Health doctors want to be entitled to consultant status, like other branches of the Health Service.
Last year members of the IMO voted in favour of strike action - which has been put on hold because of the surging cases of Covid-19 this month.
The IMO says a lack of consultancy status is affecting the ability to bring in new staff into the public health system
