It's a significant drop on yesterday's figure of 42.

Some 28 people were on trolleys in Naas General Hospital as of 8am this morning.

According to today's INMO trolley watch figures, 20 people were on trolleys in the Emergency Department, while 8 were waiting on trolleys elsewhere in the hospital.

Today's figure is a significant drop on yesterday's 42, which was the third highest trolley figure in the country, after University Hospital Limerick and Cork University Hospital.

Yesterday, Naas General Hospital issued a renewed call for people to consider all care options for non-urgent care.

The Hospital said it is experiencing a high level of attendances and admissions.

It is asking patients with non-emergency conditions, to where possible seek assistance from other parts of the health service such as their local Pharmacist or GP.

Patients who are presenting at the Emergency Department with non-urgent conditions are experiencing lengthy waiting times to be seen, however any patient who needs emergency hospital care will be seen.

Naas General Hospital urges such patients not to delay in seeking medical attention and to dial 999 or 112 in an emergency or if you suspect you are having a heart attack or stroke.
