Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation
It is on promised legislation. Under the programme for Government, there is a commitment to enhancing the medical sector. I want to ask the Taoiseach about the turnaround timeframe for medical card applications. I have several constituents waiting for a reply and it seems the times are getting longer and longer. In essence, many of these people are very unwell. It is not the number of medical cards that are being granted, to be fair, it is just the turnaround time. Is there a reason for the delay, and if so, what is the Taoiseach going to do about it?
