There's expected to be disruption for patients in the health service today - despite a strike by 10 thousand support staff being called off.

They were due to stage a 24 hour walkout in a row over the implementation of pay rises.

However, SIPTU's confirmed the strike won't go ahead so more talks can take place at the Workplace Relations Commission.

Two more days of industrial action are planned next week if no breakthrough can be found.

Stephen McMahon from the Irish Patients Association says the strike being called off doesn't mean there won't be disruption.
