The NAGP welcome the news that, to date, 292 doctors have received confirmation from the HSE that they have met the criteria for the Rural Practice Allowance.

The NAGP has been campaigning consistently and robustly on behalf of members on the subject of the Rural Practice Allowance for the last two years and welcome the progress achieved.

However, we note that some members have been disappointed and we will continue to make representations in circumstances where issues may have arisen in terms of how calculations were reached.
