Cavan General Hospital appreciates the understanding and cooperation of the public on this matter.

The Emergency Department at Cavan General Hospital is currently 'exceptionally busy'.

In a statement issued to Northern Sound this afternoon on behalf of the HSE, anyone attending the Emergency Department with a non-urgent condition will experience very long wait times.

This latest statement follows a series of warnings issued in relation to the local hospital in recent days.

The situation has been described as a "frequent occurrence" which the HSE has apologised for.

According to the HSE, staff are working very hard to treat and care for those who are particularly ill.

In a bid to free up beds, patients and families are asked to work with the hospital at the point of discharge and accept placements that may be immediately available.
