Cork University Hospital is the most overcrowded hospital in the country today, where 82 people are waiting on trolleys.

The total number of patients without a bed across the county is 109, including 24 in the Mercy University Hospital and 3 in Bantry General.

That's according to the INMO's daily trolley watch figures, which show there are 612 patients on trolleys nationally.

It comes after the hospital overcrowding record was broken for 2022 yesterday, with the union seeing a 27% rise in people on trolleys in the last seven days.

The INMO have appealed to the HSE and Minister for Health to take immediate action in the worst hit hospitals.
