Clarity needs to be provided on issuing of emergency cards

A Donegal TD is urging the Government to make sure GPs are aware that they can issue emergency medical cards.


Independent Deputy, Thomas Pringle, says his constituency office is inundated with calls from people who have to apply or renew their cards.


Due to the cyberattack on the HSE’s computer network, the medical card system is down which he says is creating anxiety in people.


Speaking to OceanFM News, Deputy Pringle is urging people not to let medical issues go untreated.
