Anybody in Ireland with a medical emergency has the right to attend their local hospital accident and emergency department. There may be a cost for this unless you have been referred by your family doctor (GP) or you hold a medical card. Some health services are free. These include maternity and infant care, health services for pre-school children, school health services, vaccinations and immunisation services.
