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

Some 32 people were on trolley in Naas General Hospital as of 8am this morning.

According to today's INMO, 26 people were on trolleys in the Emergency Department, while 6 were waiting on trolleys elsewhere in the hospital.

Earlier this week, Naas General Hospital made a renewed call for people to consider all care options for non-urgent care.

The Hospital said it is experiencing 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.
