Trolley numbers at the region’s main hospital have eased slightly today.

According to the INMO, there were 58 patients without a bed at the region’s main hospital this morning, 29 on trolleys in the emergency department and a further 29 in overflow areas of wards.

Though this is a drop of just one on yesterday’s figure, University Hospital Limerick remains the busiest in the country today.
