Our staff in Kildare Medical Centre care for a large population of medical card holders. If you would like to apply for a medical card or a GP visit card with our practice you can pick up a form at your local health office or download a form here <href=”http://www.hse.ie/eng/”>www.hse.ie for reasons of good clinical care, it is our usual policy to accept medical card applications only from those who live in reasonable proximity to our practice.
