Unions are lobbying against plans that could see Cornish doctors and nurses work longer for less pay.

The Royal Cornwall Hospital and a group of almost 20 others in the south-west warns the other option is laying off six thousand staff.

Bosses say they have got to do something to cut the wage bill.

Unison will be at Treliske's annual meeting later.

Documents detailing the plans have already been released.

Spokesman Stuart Roden calls regional pay a mistake: "If wages are driven down it means there's less money in the local economy. So it means that the percentage of GDP will actually reduce over time not increase and we're just going to embed low-paid, low-skilled jobs into Cornwall."
