9,331 people were on waiting lists for a variety of treatments at Naas General Hospital in January.

The National Treatment Purchase Fund reports the 207 people were awaiting in-patient appointments, 1,124 patients were on GI Endoscopy and 8,049 people were on out-patient lists.

Nationally, over 556,000 patients were waiting for a first hospital outpatient consultation at the end of January.

Budget 2020 provided € 100 million euro for the Fund this year- that's a 25 million euro increase on 2019.

The NTPF says the money will be used to help improve waiting times.
