Those in need of non-urgent care will experience long wait times.
For the second day running The Regional Hospital Mullingar’s Adult and Paediatric Emergency Departments are both busy today.
The hospital is in escalation and teams are working to manage the current adult and p[aediatric in-patient and Covid-19 bed capacity together with scheduled care.
People are asked to consider their options before presenting to EDs as those in need of urgent care will be prioritised and others may experience long wait times.
Hospital Management would like to thank the public for their support and understanding during this period.
