The public is being urged to brace for delays in getting treatment at health facilities after only a fraction of the island's nurses turned up for work today.

President of the Nurses Association of Jamaica, Carmen Johnson, says many nurses did not turn up for work in response to the delay in settling wage negotiations with the government.
