Doctor Visit Card Application
As you may be aware, the government recently announced the expansion of free GP care to all children under the age of 8 and to households earning below the new median income threshold. Eligible current practice patients can apply in the coming months as follows:
· If your child is aged 6 or 7, you can apply online for a Doctor Visit Card from 11th August 2023.
· If your household earns below the median income (€47,000 per year after deductibles) you can apply online for a Doctor Visit Card. The extension of free GP care on income grounds will take place in two phases, on September 11th and November 13th.
If your child turns 6 before 11th August you must apply again.
Please note that all patients applying for a new Doctor Visit Card are asked to apply to the below GPs in the practice. This will not affect your choice of GP to attend but will help us to manage our patient lists effectively.
