Emergency Department Update

Tallaght University Hospital says high numbers attending the Emergency Department is putting services under pressure.

The Hospital is asking those with non-urgent conditions to consider all other care options.

The Hospital remains committed to treating everyone who presents at ED, however it will do so in order of medical priority. Given the volume of patients currently attending ED, the hospital regrets there are lengthy delays and long wait times for those who do not need urgent treatment. We are asking the public to consider alternative care options before attending the ED, as unfortunately people with less urgent complaints will experience long wait times.  

For those who are not in need of urgent attention, GP and GP Out of Hours services and pharmacies may provide more appropriate healthcare in a more comfortable setting.

Here is a list of other care and treatment options;
