A new General Hospital has been approved for Galway.
The new hospital will be located on the site of Merlin Park Hospital Grounds.
Tuan based Fianna Fail Councillor Donagh Killilea says while it’s only at an early stage yet the HSE are indicating to be at very advanced stage by 2026.
Cllr. Killilea says this hospital is long overdue to ease the pressure on the rest of the regional hospitals in the west.
He has been speaking to Midwest Radio’s Michael D McAndrew.
