The National Association for General Practitioners complained that its 1,200 members had been excluded from the negotiations surrounding care for under sixes.

A spokesman said the organisation remains of the view that "the most appropriate method of introducing universal care is by raising the income threshold at which patients qualify for a full medical card, as well as investing in GP-delivered chronic disease management."

"The Association believes that patients who are most vulnerable should be given priority," the spokesman added.
