Department of Health
According to HSE, there was a 21.1% reduction in Emergency Department (ED) attendances nationally this year up to the end of April 2020 compared to the same period last year. The number of attendances for patients in the over 75 age group also decreased by 15.8% nationally.
In relation to ED attendances at Wexford General Hospital, as this is a service matter, I have asked the HSE to respond to the Deputy directly.
