There were seven ambulances with patients lined up outside Mayo University Hospital in Castlebar last night, as ambulance staff awaited the admittance of their patients to the Emergency Dept of the hospital.

That’s according to Castlebar Independent councillor Michael Kilcoyne.

 Cllr Kilcoyne told Midwest News today that it’s ironic that the Minister for Climate Action is in Castlebar today, as seven ambulances were forced to keep their vehicles running last night to keep sick patients warm and cared for as they awaited entry to the hospital.

He says the need for an expansion of the Emergency Dept at MUH has long been both debated and promised by government, and yet sick people in this region are forced to put up with these services.
