This morning we revealed how a number of patients had to be treated at different locations in the hospital including the Day Services Unit.
This is the statement issued on behalf of the hospital at 5.30pm this evening.
“The Emergency Department at Letterkenny General Hospital is extremely busy tonight (January 26, 2015) with a very high number of attendances. Members of the public are reminded to keep the Emergency Department for emergencies and to contact their GP or GP Out of Hours services in the first instance.
“Patients with minor ailments or who are not emergencies can expect to experience long delays as priority will need to be given to other patients who need emergency care.”
