Overcrowding in hospital emergency departments and wards has increased by 51%, when compared with the same month last year.
According to the Irish Nurses and Midwives Organisation, there were 7,775 people being treated on trolleys in June - a record high for the month.
The organisation has said this is the 12th month in a row where overcrowding has been higher than the same period in the previous year.
The INMO began its 'Trolley Watch' 12 years ago.
