Using data from the first two waves of the Infant Cohort of GUI (i.e., when the children were aged 9 months and 3 years), this report examines the extent to which the current system of healthcare financing in Ireland shapes the pattern of GP use. The report also examines the impact of extending free GP care on the demand for GP services among young children in Ireland.
