More than 200 people and 60 ambulances arrived in one day at Craigavon Hospital recently.

However, a Southern Trust Spokesman said Wednesday, August 26 had not been “exceptionally busy”.

“Patients arriving via ambulance were brought immediately into the Emergency department and triaged by nursing staff. 83% of all new patients were triaged within 15 minutes.

“Almost 70% of these patients were triaged, assessed and either discharged or admitted within four hours.

“No patients waited longer than the 12 hour target.”
