The Daily Telegraph focuses its coverage of the 28-hour strike action on the impact to cancer patients, as it headlines: “Cancer nurses on strike for first time”. The paper reports that Chief Nursing Officer for England, Dame Ruth May, said she was grateful to the RCN for agreeing on critical mitigations during walkouts, but strikes “will still have a very significant impact on services” and patients can expect to wait for longer to be seen. The strike will impact around half of England’s NHS trusts.
