Ahead of the February bank holiday weekend the HSE is encouraging the public to be aware of their healthcare options and to know where to go should you or your family become unwell. Health staff across hospital and community services in Galway, Mayo and Roscommon will continue to work together to ensure patient flow and access to services throughout the long weekend.

-          Consider all healthcare options before attending a hospital Emergency Department including Out of Hours GP service and pharmacies

-          Out of Hours GP service Westdoc will be open for urgent GP appointments all weekend. Call 0818 360 000 for an appointment

-          Patients who attend EDs for routine and non-urgent treatment may have long waiting times over the coming weekend and into early next week

-          UK and Europe are seeing a rise in Measles, parents are asked to ensure their children are up to date with the MMR vaccine

Emergency Departments treat seriously ill patients. Visit an ED or call 999 or 112 if someone is seriously ill or injured and their life is at risk. Those with less severe injuries and symptoms may have to wait to be seen.
