RTÉ Investigates - Living on the List reveals the shocking and painful reality behind the numbers on hospital waiting lists in Ireland. The programme aired on RTÉ One, with a viewing audience share of 28%. The documentary follows patients who spend months and even years waiting just to get an appointment to see a doctor and then they are forced to wait even longer to have a procedure or operation. How as time passes their conditions worsen and the long term impact can be far-reaching. How the impact goes far beyond the numbers on the waiting lists, as families and friends are also affected.
