A hospital doctors strike in French Polynesia has ended.

The strike was called off after four days following an agreement between the doctor's union and the health minister.

However, the union's head says the outcome of the talks is not satisfactory and organisational issues remain to be addressed.

He said the doctors decided to resume work because the backlog of patients had been become untenable.

He also told a local radio station that the doctors are already considering more strike action.
