Under 8 DVC – Doctor Visit Card

All children living in Ireland under 8 years of age can apply for a Doctor Visit Card for free GP care.

Newborn infants can apply without a PPS number (up to 4 months old) – leave this box blank.

When completing the online application the easiest way to select Doctor is enter the number “53573”.  For practice operational purposes all patients in the practice will be allocated to the GMS list of Dr Thomas O’Byrne (GMS 53573). This does not impact whichever of the Doctors you wish to attend for your appointments. 

The online application can usually be completed in under 5 minutes.
