KGH BiggerKERRY General Hospital is reporting an increased level of activity and the hospital is advising that non-urgent patients may now experience significant delays.

“Hospital management are requesting that, where appropriate, the public contact their GP in the first instance and explore all other options available to them prior to attending the Emergency Department if their needs are not urgent,” read a statement issued from Kerry General Hospital this morning.

“The hospital would also like to take this opportunity to assure the public and service users that every effort is being made to address this situation. Patient care is paramount in KGH and the situation is being managed as a priority and reviewed on an ongoing basis.”

“The HSE South/South West Hospital Group and Kerry General Hospital Management wish to acknowledge the ongoing hard work and dedication of all staff during this particularly busy time.”

Yesterday the INMO figures revealed there were 12 patients waiting on trolleys at the hospital.
