The Ireland East Hospital Group and Wexford General Hospital are asking the public to consider all available healthcare options ahead of the St Patrick’s Day long weekend.

Wexford General Hospital (WGH) is now operating an Acute Medical Assessment Unit (AMAU), open from 8.30am to 7pm, seven days a week for patients 16 years of age and up. The AMAU is being operated from the Hospitals ED building and requires GP referral only.

The Minor Injury Unit at Wexford General Hospital is open from 8am to 6pm for all patients 3 years of age and up. The Hospital requests people ring ahead to schedule an appointment in the MIU.

The National Ambulance Service say that patients in the Wexford district will be taken to University Hospital Waterford, in the Bunclody district will go to St. Luke’s Hospital, Kilkenny, and north of Ferns patients will be transported to St. Vincent’s Hospital, Dublin, or other metropolitan hospitals.

In case of an emergency the best advice is to dial 999 or 112.
