Dr. Ray Walley, the Chairman of the GP Committee of the IMO
has warned that Department of Health’s plans to extend Medical
Cards (Doctor Only) to certain categories of Long Term Illness
patients are unworkable and will lead to chaos in GP practices
across the country.
Over 400 NCHDs and medical students from across the country
have attended a special meeting in Dublin to highlight the
crisis in the NCHD service and their experiences of working
extremely difficult conditions.
