Visiting Restrictions eased at Letterkenny University Hospital

From Monday 28 June, Letterkenny University Hospital will be easing visiting restrictions and facilitating visits to patients in the ward areas by appointment. Appointments will be staggered across all ward areas each day at 6.30pm, 7.15pm and 8pm.

Seán Murphy, Hospital Manager said, “We are delighted to be in a position to re-introduce visiting from Monday. We will be arranging visits by appointment to minimise the risk of COVID-19 to patients, family members and staff.

Letterkenny University Hospital is extremely busy today

Please be advised that Letterkenny University Hospital is extremely busy today (22nd June).

This has resulted in the hospital being under severe pressure and a backlog in the Emergency Department.   

We regret that patients are currently experiencing long waiting times to be admitted from the Emergency Department to an acute bed in the hospital. We know these delays are very difficult for our patients and their families.

Significant Delays for Patients at Letterkenny University Hospital

Patients attending the Emergency Department, outpatient and other appointments at Letterkenny University Hospital are facing significant delays as the impact of the ransomware attack on the HSE IT systems continues to affect the delivery of hospital services.
