40 people were on trolleys in Naas General hospital this morning, according to the INMO's trolley watch figures.

Naas General Hospital has said is experiencing a high level of attendances and admissions in recent days. 

Where possible, the management at Naas General Hospital are asking patients with non-emergency conditions to seek assistance from other parts of the health service such as their local Pharmacist or GP.

The hospital said patients who are presenting at the Emergency Department in Naas General Hospital with non-urgent conditions are experiencing long waiting times to be seen.

However, any patient who needs emergency hospital care will be seen and Naas General Hospital would urge such patients not to delay attending the ED. Do not delay in seeking medical attention if you suspect you are having a heart attack or stroke, please dial 999 or 112 in an emergency.

Naas General Hospital would like to remind the public if you have to attend the ED in an emergency situation please ensure;

  • you wear a mask,
  • practice social distancing and ensure you tell the triage personnel if you have any signs/symptoms of Covid-19.
