Overcrowding still an issue at Letterkenny General

Overcrowding at Letterkenny General Hospital has eased but remains an issue.

According to the Irish Nurses and Midwives Organisation, there are 5 people lying on trolleys this morning either being treated or awaiting treatment.

That figures is significantly less than was recorded earlier this week.

However the problem does appear to be getting worse at Letterkenny General, last year on most occasions, the INMO daily figures mostly showed no patients on trolleys at the hospita.
