All elective surgery is being cancelled at Mayo University Hospital for four weeks over the Summer.

The General Manager of the Castlebar hospital has confirmed that all elective non-urgent surgical procedures are being cancelled for the last two weeks in July and the last two weeks in August.

Speaking on Midwest Radio this morning, General Manager Catherine Donohue explained that the cancellations are needed due to the number of theatre nurses who have left in recent months.
