On the long-term illness card, it is not my intention to expand it in its current scope, but what I am looking at is the extension of entitlement for all health services beyond medical cards, GP visit cards and LTI cards to the universal entitlement under Sláintecare. A big body of work needs to be done on universal entitlement to health services under Sláintecare. The Sláintecare team will be beginning that work this year.
