HSE welcomes strike deferral

UL Hospitals Group welcomes the deferral of industrial action by Siptu members that was due to take place this Thursday, June 20, at University Hospital Limerick, University Maternity Hospital Limerick and Croom Orthopaedic Hospital.

With a small number of exceptions, all outpatient appointments and elective procedures will now go ahead as planned at the three sites. Most patients whose appointments or procedures had been cancelled have now been contacted and rescheduled.
