The National Treatment Purchase Fund (NTPF) is responsible for the collection, collation and publication of Inpatient and Day Case waiting lists. Waiting list information is published on the NTPF website at the end of each month. The information is presented in different report formats, i.e. by National/Trend, by Hospital/Group, and by Specialty.

The most recent Inpatient/Day Case waiting list data for Letterkenny General Hospital, for end of October 2015, may be found at http://www.ntpf.ie/home/pdf//2015/10/hospitals/in-patient/0500.pdf and the most recent Outpatient Waiting List may be found at http://www.ntpf.ie/home/pdf//2015/10/hospitals/out-patient/0500.pdf.

In relation to the particular query raised, as this is a service matter, I have asked the HSE to respond to you directly. If you have not received a reply from the HSE within 15 working days please contact my Private Office and my officials will follow the matter up.
