This afternoon.

Via Fergal Bowers at RTÉ News:

The highest level of attendances at emergency departments on record has been seen in the past week, with 28,000 patients attending, according to the Health Service Executive.

HSE Chief Operations Officer Anne O’Connor said that many of those attending were older, sicker, more frail and stay in hospital longer.

Ms O’Connor said that the HSE hopes the peak is a temporary trend and a delayed winter surge.

The average daily trolley count for the past week is 333.

What could possibly be the emergency?
