Medical Card Patients

Our staff in Clifden Medical Practice care for a large population of medical card and GP visit card holders. If you would like to apply for a medical card or a GP visit card with our practice you can pick up a form at your local health office or download a form here

The HSE has set up a new website,, which may be of help to many people making an application for a medical card.

It is important to note that while the medical card will cover you for regular attendances and medications it does not cover all GP costs, for example adult vaccinations or driving license medicals and well person checks.
