A report into August’s flooding at Letterkenny General Hospital is expected to be published by the end of the month.

The Health Service Executive (HSE) says the full report by the Letterkenny Hospital Rebuild Steering Group and all related documentation will be made available to the public.

Part of the hospital was closed during flooding on August 4th following heavy rain. It was the second time the hospital had been flooded in just over a year.

A flood in July 2013 closed much of the hospital and led to an insurance claim

for €34m.

Local representatives were briefed last week by the steering group on the investigations and remedial works that are taking place.

The HSE said investigations “are being conducted or identified as necessary outside of the hospital grounds so that the risk of flooding at the hospital can be eliminated or reduced into the future”.
