The Chief Executive of the HSE says progress is being made in reducing the number of people on trolleys in Irish hospitals.

621 people were left on trolleys yesterday, while on Monday there were 760 people left without a bed - the largest number on record.

Elective procedures have been cancelled at four hospitals this week because of the extent of the overcrowding.

HSE Chief Executive Paul Reid says they need to strengthen community care to provide some relief to hospitals.
