Another clinic cancelled at LGH as A&E pressure persists

For the second time in less than a week, outpatient appointments at Letterkenny General Hospital are being cancelled as a result of overcrowding.

There are a number of patients on trollies in the Outpatients Department, and as a result, Mr Couse's surgical clinic has been cancelled. Orthopedic clinics will go ahead today, and at present, its intended that all other clinics will also go ahead. If that changes, patients will be notified directly.

Once again, people are being urged to avoid A&E unless absolutely necessary, and to use their GP or the NoWDOC service in the first instance.
