(February 7th 2019) Emergency Departments remain open during the INMO Strike action with reduced staffing levels.
The Emergency Departments across the Dublin Midlands Hospital Group are very busy and have a high number of patients waiting for beds and patients are experiencing extended waits. The Hospital Group is reminding members of the public to consider their care options before presenting to the ED.
We advise that the public only attend our emergency services if absolutely essential. If you are unwell, please go to your GP or pharmacy in the first instance. However, if you are seriously injured or ill or are worried your life is at risk the ED will assess and treat you as a priority.
We apologise to any patients who are experiencing long waits, while we prioritise the sickest patients. You can find further information at https://hse.ie/!KCAEMX
Any updates on the strike action will be posted on our website, in national newspapers and on social media.
