Midlands Regional Hospital, Tullamore

The Midland Regional Hospital Tullamore has experienced high levels of attendances with many patients requiring admission today (Wednesday, February 21).

As a result, the HSE’s Escalation Policy has been activated at the hospital.

In a statement, the hospital states, "in order to assist us we are requesting that patients in the first instance, consider using their GP out of hours for medical assessment, where possible. The Hospital regrets that any patient should experience delays in accessing In patient beds."
