Hospital Emergency Scheme
If you hold a full Medical Card, and have been discharged from an Accident and Emergency Department or ward of a public* hospital, your local McCartan’s Pharmacy can issue up to 7 days supply of your medication. This gives you a time to get your prescription organised at your GP surgery. You must present the prescription on the day you were discharged or the following day and we can supply up to seven days treatment. The Medical Card item levy of €2.50 per item applies to this scheme.
