New strikes by ambulance and hospital staff have been announced in an ongoing dispute over pay as well as safe staffing levels in the NHS.

Unite members at West Midlands Ambulance Service will take action on Monday 12 June.

Workers at Birmingham's City Hospital and Christie Hospital in Manchester are set to walk out on Wednesday.

That action is set to coincide with the British Medical Association junior doctors' strike.

Union members at the Yorkshire Ambulance Service will also walk out on 23 and 26 June.
