More than 400 people were on trolleys in St Luke’s Hospital during May

Nurses are warning that the crisis is getting worse.

Nurses are warning that the overcrowding crisis in our hospitals is getting worse.

St Luke’s Hospital for Carlow/Kilkenny saw a record 404 people on trolleys in May.

The INMO’s overall Trolley Watch figures for last month show a record-breaking 8,154 patients waiting for beds – which is up almost a quarter on last year.

INMO General Secretary Liam Doran says it’s really disappointing, and it’s not going to improve unless the Government takes action.
