Mullingar hospital 'having issues with phone lines'

Statement from Ireland East Hospital Group

Regional Hospital Mullingar (RHM) is currently experiencing some technical issues with their hospital phone system.

The problem is affecting calls being made to and from internal phone lines within the hospital.

If your call drops or does not connect first time, please try again.

The hospital’s maintenance team are working with HSE colleagues to resolve the issue. Engineers are also working onsite to find a solution.

The technical teams believe the lightning on Tuesday could have caused the problem.

Apologies for any inconvenience regarding this unavoidable issue. The hospital will provide updates as appropriate.
