Naas Hospital asks patients to use GP service today due high numbers presenting

Naas General Hospital

Naas General Hospital has asked patients to use a GP service instead of visiting the hospital today.

In a statement released this morning, a spokesperson for the hospital said that it is experiencing high levels of attendances and admissions today, and, as a result, the HSE's Escalation Policy has been activated.

“In order to assist us we are requesting that patients in the first instance, consider using their GP or Kdoc Service for medical assessment, where possible,” said the statement.

The situation will be reviewed on an ongoing basis.
