Continued overcrowding at Clonmel Emergency Department

People are once again being asked to only attend the Emergency Department at Tipperary University Hospital in the case of a genuine emergency.

A statement from the Clonmel hospital this morning says the ED is currently exceptionally busy and has been coming under continuing pressure with high numbers presenting with what’s described as a variety of complex needs.
People are being asked to consult their GP or Caredoc out of hours service in the first instance.

There are 31 patients without a bed at TUH today while front line staff at University Hospital Limerick are treating 48 patients on trolleys around the ED or in already full wards.
