Letterkenny hospital ‘facing overcrowding crisis this winter’

It’s being claimed that Letterkenny University Hospital is facing an overcrowding crisis this winter.

The hospital was the most overcrowded in the country on Monday, while it was a similar situation last Thursday.

Calls are now being made for a 19-bed short stay ward to be open immediatley.

Deputy Charlie McConalogue says the ward is ready to go, but the government just need to make funding available.
