More than 1300 children are on hospital waiting lists to see a specialist at Mayo University hospital at present.

Mayo Sinn Fein Senator Rose Conway-Walsh says the Department of Health figures released to Sinn Féin this week, showing that there are 1323 children on hospital waiting lists to see a specialist at the Mayo hospital.

The figures released to the party have shown that there are actually 86,625 children waiting to see a specialist in hospitals across the state - almost double the supposed official figure of 46,000 children waiting to see a consultant.

Senator Conway Walsh says in Mayo close to 500 children are waiting more than 12 months to see a specialist.

She told Midwest News today that the numbers waiting are completely unacceptable and has called for the appropriate staff to be hired to deal with the backlogs.
