Nearly half a million people missed hospital outpatient appointments last year, that's around 1,300 people a day.

The HSE figures released to the Irish Times shows that almost 20 percent were related to STIs and 18 percent were psychiatry appointments.

Nearly one fifth of patients failed to show up at Mayo University hospital last year, while St James's in Dublin had 17% no shows.

It comes as the HSE struggles to cut waiting lists in hospitals around the country.
