There are 62 patients on trolleys today waiting for admission to Galway University Hospital , according to the latest Trolley Watch figures from the INMO.

There are 21 patients on trolleys waiting for beds at both Mayo and Sligo University Hospitals today, with 3 patients on trolleys at Portiuncula University Hospital.

663 patients are without beds in Irish hospitals today.

INMO General Secretary Phil Ní Sheaghdha says the figures represent a worrying spike in hospital overcrowding and members are again expressing serious concerns about their ability to provide safe care to all who need it.

She says it is an intolerable situation for vulnerable patients and frontline workers alike.
