A junior doctors' strike will go ahead on Tuesday after one of their unions and Te Whatu Ora failed to reach a last-minute agreement.

That meant about half the country's junior doctors would walk off the job for 24 hours from 7am.

The two sides were holding talks as late as Monday morning to try to avoid the action.

The doctors said they were striking in support of a few hundred of their members set to get a pay cut.
