Orthopaedic waiting lists at Galway University Hospital have spiralled to over 6,000 with many people left in pain on waiting lists for hip replacement surgery for up to four years.

That’s according to Roscommon based Fianna Fail TD Eugene Murphy who says the figures reveal that up to last month there were a total of 1,092 people on inpatient day case orthopaedic waiting lists with 193 of those waiting for eight months to a year with 88 waiting from one year to 15 months.

On the outpatient waiting list for orthopaedics, a staggering total of 5,134 people have been left languishing on waiting lists.

Deputy Murphy says in some cases people have been waiting for up to four years which has labelled as outrageous.
