Over 2,800 people spent time on trolleys and chairs at LUH during 2015


Donegal Deputy Pearse Doherty has said the hospital overcrowding crisis is a national scandal, with latest figures showing a total of 2,814 patients spent time on trolleys, chairs and additional beds at Letterkenny University Hospital during 2015

The health minister says his Department is to hold new talks with the INMO and HSE to try and avert next week's strike. Leo Varadkar says the strike will put patient safety at risk - and the numbers on trolleys are down compared to last year.

However, Deputy Doherty says promises made last year have come to nothing...............
