668 people are on hospital trolleys across the country today, according to the latest trolley watch from the INMO – that’s an increase of 116 since yesterday.

 

In this region, there are 31 patients waiting for a bed at both Galway and Sligo University Hospitals, with 27 at Mayo University Hospital and 9 people on trolleys at Portiuncla Hospital in Ballinasloe.

 

Meanwhile, the Health Minister Simon Harris is seeking Cabinet approval to open 2,500 additional beds in the health service between now and 2031.

The HSE has estimated each bed would cost 1 million euro to provide.
