Written answers (Question to Health)

The Health Service Executive has been asked to examine this matter and to reply to the Deputy as soon as possible.

The Health Service Executive operates the General Medical Services scheme, which includes medical cards and GP visit cards, under the Health Act 1970, as amended. The HSE has established a dedicated enquiry service for members of the Oireachtas specifically for queries relating to medical cards and GP visit cards, which the Deputy may wish to use for a more immediate direct response. Contact information, including phone number and email address for the enquiry service, has issued to Oireachtas members.
