Representatives from the Irish Nurses and Midwives Organisation will to meet with the HSE today to discuss the overcrowding crisis.
It comes amid warnings that the health department alone can't solve the issue.
The Irish Medical Organisation says says our hospitals are 'a system in meltdown' due to overcrowding.
The Health Minister said yesterday he's committed to opening more beds and reforming the system.
However, the IMO say Simon Harris' commitments to tackle the problem must be backed up by funding from the Finance Minister.
IMO President Dr Ann Hogan says "it's a whole government issue. It's how much funding we are prepared to put into our health system and really it's a question of how important do we really think it is".
