Hospitals are bracing themselves for another busy day, following record trolley numbers yesterday.

The HSE has cancelled all non-urgent surgery at hospitals across the country today, in an attempt to reduce the trolley crisis.

It’s after the INMO reported 714 patients on trolleys and wards nationally yesterday.

A spokesperson for the Saolta hospital group told Midwest News this morning that while non-urgent electives are cancelled there are some urgent elective procedures proceeding at Mayo University Hospital today.

She added that patients have been contacted directly in relation to their procedures.
