If you are seriously ill or injured you are still being urged to attend.
Regional Hospital Mullingar’s Emergency Department and hospital are currently extremely busy with a number of patients waiting for admission.
They're working with all teams to identify patients ready for discharge.
They 're asking people to think about all their care and treatment options, the length of time you may be waiting should you not require urgent care and ask that people keep services for the patients who need them most.
However, if you are seriously injured or ill the Emergency Department will assess and treat you as a priority.
