Services deemed life-preserving and emergency-type care will continue on strike days, a nursing chief said, but she declined to give exact detail about which departments would remain staffed when colleagues stage a walk-out.

On Friday, the Royal College of Nursing (RCN) announced its members will stage their first national strike on December 15 and 20 in a dramatic escalation of the pay row raging across the NHS.

Royal College of Nursing general secretary Pat Cullen has urged Health Secretary Steve Barclay to stop the spin and start to speak with nurses to avert a walkout, accusing him of having chosen strikes over speaking to me.

Both Mr Barclay and Ms Cullen insisted on Friday that their doors are open for talks.
