Almost 6,000 people over the age of 75 spent more than 24 hours in EDs so far this year

Parts of the health system are crumbling - according to Fianna Fáil.

The party's released new figures which show almost six thousand people over the age of 75 spent more than 24 hours in emergency departments so far this year.

That's despite the HSE's own target of either discharging or admitting them within this time frame.

Health Spokesperson Billy Kelleher says its only going to get worse.
