  2. Under 8’s Scheme

Dr Nicola Black, Dr Geoff Lavery and Dr Blaire Mulvey are registered on the Under 8’s scheme.

Medical Card Holders – If your child or children have a Medical Card or GP Visit Card they will automatically be registered for this scheme.
Non-Medical Card Holders – If your child or children does not have a Medical Card or GP Visit Card you must register them for this scheme.

Please note that following registration with the HSE, your child is not covered for free care until you have actually received their Under 8s card and can present it at reception.
Without a card, a normal consultation fee will apply.
Registering on line and being issued a reference number by the HSE indicates only receipt of the application by the HSE and not acceptance by the doctor onto their panel.

Yes, once the registration of your child or children is complete, a GP Visit Card for children under 8, will be posted to the address provided, for each eligible child.

Once you complete the registration process, details are sent to your GP of choice who must accept your child or children to his or her patient panel. Once the GP of choice has confirmed acceptance of the registration of your child or children, a GP Visit Card will be issued to all eligible children within a few days.

Please note that your child will not be eligible for free GP care until you have received the GP Visit Card.

Confirmation of acceptance of your child or children is needed from your GP of choice. Your child or children’s eligibility will not commence until you receive confirmation that your GP of choice has confirmed that they have accepted your child or children onto their panel. As our patient lists are at capacity, we are only accepting children of existing patients onto our Under 8’s list.

Information for new patients

If you have made an appointment but no longer require it, we would respectfully ask you to let us know in advance, so that the appointment can be offered to another patient. This is particularly important during the autumn and winter season where the demand for appointments is very high.
