Junior doctors in Ireland are seeking a payrise of 25–40%, the Irish Medical Association (IMO) said.

The association says the basic salary of non-consultant hospital doctors (NCHDs) is low and has remained unchanged for many years, despite the fact that they work long hours in overtime, according to a report in the Irish Times.

Under the European Working Time Directive, junior doctors are not required to work more than 48 hours a week.

The Health Service Executive pays €250m every year to junior doctors for their overtime, with basic salaries of interns ranging from €35,000 and €64,000–81,000 for specialist registrars.
