Ambulance cover in south Mayo is set to improve, as an ambulance will be deployed to alternate between the Primary Care Centres in Ballinrobe and Claremorris.

That's according to Ballinrobe-based Fianna Fail Councillor Damien Ryan, who raised the matter again at a recent meeting of the HSE Regional Forum.

Councillor Ryan outlined what he calls the "deplorable" waiting times for ambulances in the south of the county, where often it can take an hour for an ambulance to respond to an emergency call.

Speaking with Midwest News, he said he has now received assurances from the ambulance service that an ambulance will be deployed to the area, to help improve response times.
