medical card

Tipperary loses out in Medical Card allocations.

North Tipperary has seen the biggest reduction in the number of people with GP visit or discretionary medical cards since 2012.


There’s been a 52% drop in the north of the county compared with a 6% fall in South Tipp.

These figures compare with a 185% increase in the number of such cards in County Meath and near 100% jumps in Louth and Mayo.

Tipperary was one of 10 areas to record a fall in the number of discretionary medical cards over the last 2 years.
