No sarcasm! Sorry i didnt read back so didnt pick up on it 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆
i found it great, but one complaint i had was charged 90e for 2 kids, but your one at the desk only put 60e on my lazer, I hadnt gotten in the door and the phone was hopping, i was getting the sick boys settled and had TEN RUDE MESSAGES from the Indian Doctor who seen us!!!!
I didnt ring back as it was their mistake, i did get a bill in the post for the 30e which i paid over the phone… ended up with 2 Receipts one for 90 and one for 60e, happy days!March 8, 2011 at 10:07 pm #110985lellykellyMember
Good luck going to A & E was up there myself last night, mayhem the wait was 9 – 10 hours. Elderly people who had been sitting there since 4pm were leaving at 9 having been told they could be waiting another 5 or more hours. Having said that though, those who came in with children were seen straight away so hopefully you will be okay 😕March 9, 2011 at 10:23 am #111006mammycoolParticipant
I usually go to the doctor on call in Navan – find them very good. The only times I have ever go though are when the kids have vomited up the calpol and I cannot get their temperature down – I have since discovered paralink.(last resort – hate it with a vengance – feel like some sort of sicko – but it does the job). Or with my head split open – managed to do it in a nice straight line – so they could glue it instead of stitching(happy days)March 9, 2011 at 3:33 pm #111015

I really hope this government follows through with a health system reform, its long overdue.
i have nothing against anyone with a medical card but why should i have to pay for the doctor while the person beside me doesnt … also the medicines in the chemist , the last 2 months i have gone over the €120 dps…. it makes my blood boil, it should be the same system for everyone … i can not afford to bring my kids to the doctor but i have to as dd gets convulsions with a high temperatureMarch 9, 2011 at 8:58 pm #111034
i think all health services should be free for children under 18. its a disgrace my friends dd was in and out of hostipal last year with constent headaches and blackouts the bills all put together were 24,000 euro between scans and tests she couldnt believe how much it came to in the end but the child is grand now not a bother on her.March 11, 2011 at 9:56 am #111121AnonymousInactive
with regard to medical cards and qualifying for one sometimes you can get a medical card for one person in the family only if they have more medical conditions/needs than the rest of the family. I did this when my daughter had many medical procedure/treatments/medications and with her condition we couldnt take chances and had to go to GP immediately if any worries. We were initially refused a card as over the limit but I added up her expenses alone and they were very high so she was granted a card in her own name. It was a full medical card. Had to put up a bit of a fight though as initally it was a NO.
Just if anyone has someone in their family with a condition that does cost a lot in medical care.
