Delays at UHG with 32 patients waiting for admission to the hospital

Management at Galway University Hospital are warning that the Emergency Department is extremely busy today, with 32 patients waiting for admission to the hospital.

People attending the Emergency Department are being advised to expect delays, and they’re being encouraged only to attend the ED in the case of real emergencies – and should contact their GP in the first instance.

Hospital management have apologised to patients and their families for the delays, and say the children’s department is not affected by the overcrowding in the adult Emergency Department.
