Waiting time worries

January Blues

In January, Irish people were most concerned about waiting times in Irish hospitals.

Despite less news coverage than Irish water protests and the atrocities at Charlie Hebdo, people scored 'waiting times in Irish hospitals and patients on trolleys' as the story they were most aware of and the story which was of greatest importance to them.

People over the age of 55 scored this story even higher with an ig score of 87
- understandably as they are the cohort most likely to fall ill in January.
