    Medical Cards

    As senior citizens gather this afternoon to protest the cuts seen in last week’s budget the spotlight has focussed once again on medical cards, for the over seventies, for discretionary cases and for the under fives. The stories highlighted in recent days of people with severe medical hardship losing their medical cards continue to cause concern Whether it was the case of “Stella” who spoke to the Minister for Finance on this programme last Wednesday about her two boys with Cerebral Palsy or “Lydia” who talked to Joe Duffy last Friday about her severely disabled daughter… or the many other ...

    Budget 2014: Medical Cards

    One of the most contentious issues from Budget 2014 has been the decision to cut €113 million from the Medical Card Budget.

    Post Polio Syndrome & the medical card

    Callers talk about their experiences of Post Polio Syndrome. Eddie contracted polio when he was 3-and-a-half. In 2001 he started to get pains in his lower back and realised it was the start of Post Polio Syndrome. Ann was hospitalised with polio when she was 4 and spent 8 years in hospital making both her Holy Communion and Confirmation there.
