Waiting times and parking costs at Galway Hospitals criticised

Galway Bay fm newsroom – Hospital waiting times and high parking costs have been marked as the biggest problems for older people in Galway.

A survey conducted by local Age Action members in Galway found that over 2 thirds of those asked found high parking costs one of their main concerns.

Almost a third said that the length of time waiting to be seen by a doctor is one of the most stressful parts of the day.

Head of Advocacy and Communications in Age Action, Justin Moran says these key concerns need to be addressed for the elderly.
