WE NEED YOUR HELP ON THIS ONE PLEASE!
I’m writing to add my voice to Jonathan Irwin’s call on you to intervene in the medical card crisis and to order a review of the HSE’s broken medical card system, before any Free GP cards for under 5s are initiated.
Parents of healthy children under 5 years old do not want this free GP card at the expense of medical cards for children who are dying, or children with severe disabilities whose medical cards are delayed or refused.
ADD A LINE OR TWO ABOUT YOUR OWN EXPERIENCE ON MEDICAL CARDS, OR YOUR CONNECTION WITH JACK & JILL. MAKE SURE TO LET THE TAOISEACH KNOW WHAT COUNTY YOU LIVE IN AND CONSIDER EMAILING COPY OF THIS TO YOUR LOCAL REPRESENTATIVES AT [email protected]
YOUR NAME AND HOME COUNTY

“… Medical cards for a palliative (dying) child should not be up for review and should not be issued on a temporary basis, but rather given to the family automatically and followed up by a range of supports to help parents to care for their child at home.
“This medical card debate is going around in circles post budget and I am calling on the Taoiseach to order a review of the HSE’s broken medical card system, before any Free GP cards for under 5s are initiated.” (Jonathan Irwin, Jack & Jill CEO)
Please keep us posted on anyways we can support you in this.
