The new extension to The Accident and Emergency Department at Kerry General will cut waiting times for patients according to the hospitals General Manager. Margie Lynch says the extra space that the extension will bring will allow more room to treat patients and so reduce the number of people waiting to be seen. A project team has been appointed following today`s announcement of approval from the department of health. A design brief is expected to be ready in the New Year. Margie Lynch says its good news too for staff working in Accident and Emergency.
