IMO Hits Out At Waiting Lists For Children Waiting For Orthopaedic Procedures

Nearly 400 children have been on a hospital waiting list for an orthopaedic procedure for at least two years.

A further 1,600 kids have been waiting for between 12 and 24 months, according to new Freedom of Information figures.
Paediatric orthopaedics deal with children with bone, joint or muscle problems, such as scoliosis.
