Use this form to apply for a medical card or a doctor visit card. The form will need to be signed and stamped by your GP before you send it off.
We can do this without an appointment for any of our registered patients but you will need to allow us 24 hours as paperwork is a job that the doctors only get a chance to do after surgery has finished for the day. If you are a new patient applying for a Medical Card/Doctor Visit Card with us, you will need to have a quick chat with one of our GPs before we sign the form for you. There is no charge for this.
