If you are heading to a hospital it might be advisable to ring beforehand

Roscommon University Hospital is reporting considerable issues as a result of a cyber attack on the HSE's computer systems.

A number of outpatient appointments have been cancelled and these patients have been contacted directly. These appointments will be rescheduled as soon as possible.

All x-ray appointments have been cancelled.

Patients can expect delays in all clinics and in the Injury Unit today as existing IT systems are not in use and the manual workarounds are time-consuming.

If patients have questions about their appointments today they can call the hospital on 090 6626200. We would like to thank our patients for their understanding at this difficult time.
