Mc Hugh wants new A&E unit to open immediately

There is a crisis waiting to happen at Letterkenny General Hospitals Emergency Unit if the A&E Unit doesn't open soon, according to Donegal North-East Deputy, Joe McHugh.

In the past fortnight 1820 patients have visited Letterkennys A&E Department.

And some patients have had to be treated in ambulances because there is no space.

Deputy McHugh says the new A&E unit must open now, and not two months time..........
