A Mayo Fianna Fáil TD says the increase in the number of people presenting at Mayo University Hospital's Emergency Department is further proof of the Government's inaction in dealing with the current health crisis.

Deputy Lisa Chambers submitted a number of Parliamentary Questions to the Minister for Health regarding the current situation at Mayo University Hospital's Emergency Department and says the response she received was not surprising.

Figures show that there was an increase in attendances to the Emergency Department of 6.3% between January and May of this year, which saw 16,162 people attending the ED, compared to 15,202 in the same period in 2017.

Deputy Chambers says she has been highlighting the overcrowding at MUH's ED since she was first elected to the council in 2014 and every year sees an increase in figures.
