GPs Claim They Aren’t Getting Enough From Government For Treating Medical Card Holders

GPs claim they’re not getting enough money from the Government for treating medical card patients.

They say they get around 9 euro per month per person – but that could include multiple visits to the doctor.

The latest stats show the HSE paid 540 million euro last year to general practices – but that’s just 3 per cent of the total health budget.


Chris Goodey of the National Association of General Practitioners wants the Health Minister to up his investment.
