1,317 funded nursing and midwifery posts are left vacant in Ireland's acute hospitals due to the HSE's recruitment ban.

The Irish Nurses and Midwives Organisation says midwifery vacancies "disproportionately affect women."

INMO General Secretary, Phil Ní Sheaghdha says it's time for the recruitment ban to go.

She is also warning that patients are being put at risk due to the block in certain positions.
