All elective surgery has been cancelled this week at Mayo University Hospital.

Catherine Donohoe, General Manager of Mayo University Hospital told Midwest News today that the shortage of nursing staff at the hospital continues to be one of the biggest problem it’s experiencing at present.

Last week in excess of 20 patients were on trolleys waiting for admission to the Castlebar hospital most days last week.

To ensure that there is bed capacity at MUH this Christmas for patients, Ms Donohoe says all elective surgery at the hospital this week has been cancelled.
