Participation of Provision of Services to under 6 year olds

We are participating in the provision of services pursuant to the Health (General Practitioner Service) Act 2014 (under 6 years olds). From 1 July 2015, children under the age of 6 are entitled to free visits to GPs that are taking part in the scheme. Children can be registered from 15 June 2015 to get a GP visit card for children under 6. In addition to free GP visits, the card covers specific assessments at age 2 and 5 and care for children with asthma. If your child or children have a Medical Card or GP Visit Card they will automatically be registered for this new scheme.

How to apply

If you have any questions before registering, you can phone Lo-call 1890 252 919.
