Patients urged to consider options before attending Mullingar hospital emergency department

Patients are being urged to consider their options before attending the emergency department at the regional hospital Mullingar. 

A spokesperson for Ireland East Hospital Group, said this morning, Monday, September 6, "The Regional Hospital Mullingar’s Emergency Department is currently extremely busy with attendances. The hospital teams are working to manage the current In-Patient and Covid-19 bed capacity.

"We would ask patients to consider their options before attending the Emergency Department. If you do come to ED and are not triaged as seriously ill, you may need to wait for a long period to be seen. Patients who require urgent care will be prioritised. Please attend the ED alone where possible.

"Hospital Management would like to thank the public for their support and understanding during this period."
