Unusual figure for those on trolleys today at Letterkenny University Hospital

A section of the list issued this morning

Figures issued this morning by the INMO for numbers on trolleys or waiting admission at Letterkenny University Hospital today are unusual, possibly unique - as there is no one listed for either category.

Letterkenny and Nenagh General Hospital are the only two hospitals in the country showing zero figures but for Sligo University Hospital which caters for thousands of people in the southern part of Donegal, there are 19 people on trolleys and a further six in wards.

The INMO issue Trolley and Ward Watch figures every day. Nationwide, excluding St Vincent's Hospital in Dublin where figures are not available, they list 425 people on trolleys or in wards this morning.
