Patients entitled to free medicines including the holders of the Yellow Card and those entitled to diabetes medicine, which they collect from Paola or Qormi health centres, must register under the POYC scheme after ensuring they have all the required documents. Such documents may include the Yellow Card, the Pink Card or the White Card for controlled medicines as well as the entitlement permit for medicines needing Health Department approval.
The date of registration will be announced shortly.
