TROLLEY NUMBERS DROP AS TASKFORCE CONTINUES TO MEET

395 people are waiting on trolleys in hospitals around the country this morning.

It’s well down on the peak of more than 600 earlier in the week.

There are 3 people waiting on beds in Wexford General Hospital according to the latest Trolleywatch figures released by the Irish Nurses and Midwives Organisation.

However it remains significantly higher than the HSE’s targets for the number of people without a bed.

The Emergency Department Taskforce has been meeting this morning to discuss the issue.
