    UHG in Galway is the busiest hospital in the Country for medical tasking's by the Coastguard and Air Corps Helicopters, in 2018 over 260 landings took place at the Helipad, yesterday the HSE informed Galway City Council of how important a facility the Helipad at UHG is as they told them plans are being drawn up to build a new Helipad that will probably consist of two pads as several times the Coastguard and Air Corps helicopters have arrived at the same time, the first in would land on the pad and the other one on the nearby pitch. Wonderful service being provided by the Coastguard and Air Corps.

    considering that major incidents are now routinely routed to galway from inishowen down the north west coast thats not suprising.
