Treatment on Medical Card Scheme (G.M.S)
Re: Cessation of Medical Card Scheme
The practices, provision of treatment under this scheme will stop from September 1st. All people with appointments and in the middle of treatment will be cared for and their treatment will be completed. I have operated the scheme for forty years. Since I turned 65 years, I have decided to retire the practice from the G.M.S. This will help to reduce the workload; time waits for no man. Thanks to all who supported the practice under the scheme.
We will continue to treat people under the P.R.S.I. scheme and fee-paying patients.
The provision of treatment under G.M.S. has become increasingly more difficult to operate. It is also the one scheme that will reduce the workload by ceasing its operation.
