University Hospital Galway is the most overcrowded hospital in the country today, with 46 patients waiting for a bed - according to the Irish Nurses & Midwives Organisation.

There are 16 patients on trolleys at Mayo University Hospital, 11 at Sligo University Hospital and 6 at Portiuncla in Ballinasloe.

Reacting to reports of 46 patients on trolleys at University Hospital Galway, Headford-based Fianna Fail Councillor Mary Hoade says it's a difficult situation for patients and staff - yet the delivery of a new Emergency Department is at least three years away.
