GPs who accept medical cards

During the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic we may have less staff available to deal with GP visit card applications. The quickest way to apply for a GP visit card is online.

Search the lists for GPs providing services for:

If your GP of choice is not on the list, they might not currently be accepting additional patients.

If you apply online we will contact your preferred GP and ask them to accept you on to their list.

If you’re applying manually, and you’ve had a medical or GP visit card in the last 6 months, let us know on the form if you’re happy to stay with the same GP that you’re already with.

If you can’t get a GP to accept you on their patient list, try another GP in your area.

Contact us if 3 GPs have declined to accept you on to their patient list. We will assign you a GP.
