After talks between the Finance Ministry and nurses union broke down late Tuesday night, the ministry issued a statement calling on the union to "immediately return to the negotiating table and to stop disruptions at hospitals across the country that come at the peak of winter."

The statement added: "In recent days there have been discussions between the Health and Finance Ministries on steps needed to ease the load on hospitals and within these discussions we are examining the possibility to add more beds to hospitals."
