Patients in Limerick are needlessly suffering

There isn’t a family in Limerick or elsewhere in the state currently unaffected by the crisis of hospital waiting lists.

There are currently 36,699 people on waiting lists for procedures at University Hospital Limerick alone.

This is made up of 34,688 people on the outpatient waiting list and 2,011 patients on the inpatient waiting list.

Every measure from the government so far has failed miserably and each month the numbers keep escalating at University Hospital Limerick and other hospitals across the State.

The Minister for Health’s failure to deal with the crisis is continuously undermining the fantastic work of staff in University Hospital Limerick.

Information I recently received from the Department of Health outlines the huge waiting times many people are being forced to wait at University Hospital Limerick.
