The Saolta Hospital Group’s Emergency Departments are extremely busy today.
The hospital group says they are experiencing high levels of attendance and there is increased pressure on bed availability.
The group is asking the public to consider alternative routes for care where possible; like GPs, Out of Hours Doc and the Roscommon Injury Unit.
They have also apologised to those waiting a long time to be seen.
Saolta University Health Care Group comprises hospitals in Galway, Mayo, Roscommon, Ballinasloe, Letterkenny and Sligo.
