Nurses and midwives are gathering in protest at hospitals across the country, demanding the HSE make plans for the expected winter increase in patients.

INMO figures show that August was the worst on record for overcrowding, with hundreds of vacant nursing posts in emergency departments and wards across Ireland.

The INMO revealed last week that the HSE still does not have a plan to recruit extra staff or reduce services to cope with the demand.

Nurses and midwives are protesting this lunchtime at the Main Entrance of University Hospital Galway.
