Some outpatient clinics cancelled in Letterkenny

The HSE says Emergency Departments around the country were busier than usual over the Christmas period, particuarly with people sustaining strains and fractures as a result of slips and falls on icy roads and footpaths.

Christmas and new Year figures for Letterkenny General Hospital will be published next month.

Meanwhile, management at the hospital have confirmed that Mr Consadine's ENT clinic and Dr Mc Kenna's Dermatology clinic has been cancelled today.
