In and Outpatient Treatment Suspended From Tomorrow

The Irish Patients Association says it's disappointed by a "blanket decision" to cancel non-emergency care in public hospitals.

The HSE says both inpatient and outpatient treatments will be put on hold from tomorrow, so there's extra capacity for surging Covid-19 admissions.
Latest figures from National Treatment Purchase Fund show nearly 613,000 people are waiting for outpatient hospital care.
