It's of grave concern that, just two days into September, the trolley situation at Mayo University Hospital is already rising significantly - that’s the view of Independent Castlebar Councillor Michael Kilcoyne, who's a member of the HSE West Forum.
There were 22 people waiting on trolleys for admission at Mayo University Hospital yesterday (Tues), according to INMO figures - the Castlebar hospital had the third highest number of patients nationally waiting for admissions.
Meanwhile, there are no patients at present at Mayo University Hospital with a confirmed Covid 19 diagnosis.
Councillor Kilcoyne told Midwest News that the return to high trolley numbers at the Castlebar facility, before the winter flu season has even begun. is worrying for everyone
