Posted by


KERRY Sinn Féin TD Martin Ferris has written to University Hospital Kerry Management and the HSE about current waiting times at A&E at the Hospital.

Speaking today, Deputy Ferris said; “Having been contacted by a number of patients and their families who had the misfortune to have had to present to A&E last night and today, they tell me that the waiting times are intolerable for people needing treatment.”

“I have contacted hospital management and the HSE looking for an explanation, I will also be contacting Minister Simon Harris to highlight once again the lack of resources in our health services in Kerry. It is blatantly obvious that there are not enough staff, especially doctors servicing out of hours in A&E. It is a situation that is totally unacceptable and is extremely worrying for patients and their families.”

INMO nurses staged a lunchtime protest last week over the issue of overcrowding at UHK.
