246 additional beds announced for Galway’s public hospitals

They’re part of a national announcement of 3,352 new beds – which brings the Government’s projected total of new beds by 2031 to 4,367.

But experts have been questioning if the plans are realistic, and if the beds can be delivered on time and on budget.

The INMO has also voiced criticism of the latest announcements – warning extra beds are “pointless” if there aren’t enough staff to support the increases.
