Game of cards

I would like to draw the attention of your readers who hold medical cards to an issue which may affect them, if it has not already done so.

As GPs, we have noticed in the last number of months that the processing of new applications and more importantly the renewal of a previously held medical card is meeting with excessive delay.

This has been the case since these issues have been centralised at the HSE's Primary Care Reimbursement Service (PCRS) but has been more noticeable in the last few months.
