People Asked To Consider Other Healthcare Options This Bank Holiday Weekend

Minor injuries units are being suggested as a suitable alternative.

People are being encouraged to look for alternative healthcare options rather than visiting the Emergency Department over the bank holiday period.

Anyone with suspected broken bones in their arms or legs, minor burns or wounds could instead seek help at the Mullingar Minor Injuries Unit.

GPs, Out of hours GP services and pharmacies are also recommended.

Kay Slevin, Hospital Manager, Regional Hospital Mullingar says: "While some patients may regrettably experience long wait times in our emergency departments, urgent patients will always be prioritised for treatment and care."
