Carers Allowance

Posted by Alan Kelly on September 03, 2018 at 02:15 PM

An additional 14,000 Carers are eligible for free GP Services.

I would encourage all carers in receipt of full or half rate Carer’s Allowance or Carer’s Benefit, who do not currently hold a medical or GP visit card to apply online, following the extension of the GP Visit Scheme. The HSE has set up an online system for carers to register for their free GP Visit Card on, and paper registration is also available ile by downloading a form from the website. Carers play such a crucial role in our society today. This is a very welcome initiative and goes some way to recognise the important role played by carers.

If anyone needs assistance with downloading or completing the form please feel free to contact my office.
