Patients urged to stay away from Naas Hospital

Naas General Hospital

Patients are being urged to stay away from Naas Hospital today.

It’s the latest in a series of decisions by the Health Service Executive to encourage patients to visit their GP first because of overcrowding at the facility.

The HSE said the escalation policy had been activated because of the high level of admissions to the hospital.
