Call for government to invest in emergency department at Cavan General

A local TD is calling on the government to invest in the emergency department of Cavan General Hospital.

Fianna Fáil TD said the staff in Cavan Hospital have been working with resources that are overstretched. She said there is a case for funding submitted by the RCSI group and hoped the Minister for Health would consider it.

Speaking to Northern Sound News, Deputy Niamh Smyth said the facilities are not suitable for the number of patients.
