“Guarantee access to healthcare for all”… This Monday, in a press release, the Order of Physicians recalls the public service mission assumed by all caregivers.

A mission undermined by the implementation of “the health pass in health establishments?

It is the fear of the Order of Physicians which insists on the fact that this health pass "must not deprive patients of care".

The anti-Covid bill, which was adopted definitively on July 25 by Parliament, provides for the obligation of the health pass for non-emergency patients or visitors to health establishments and retirement homes.

Concerns before the extension of the pass on August 9

Already applied in cultural and leisure venues since July 21, the extension of the health pass is scheduled for August 9.

In the meantime, the Constitutional Council is due to render its decision on the law on Thursday.

The French Society for Support and Palliative Care (SFAP) also warns Monday "on the importance of maintaining the presence of relatives with patients at the end of life". "How can we accept that people in need of care and who go to the hospital can be turned away because they do not have a health pass? Asked professionals from the world of psychiatry in an open letter to Jean Castex on Friday.

"Rather than keeping patients away from healthcare services, it would be more appropriate, and highly necessary, to promote support to vaccination sites for the most psychologically disadvantaged patients", add the signatories, including notably the Union of psychiatry, the union of hospital psychiatrists or the National Federation of associations of users in psychiatry.

"Additional obstacles to patient care"

The National Union of Hospital Doctors (SNMH FO) had invited Thursday to refuse “these additional obstacles to the care of patients!


And even before the passage of the law, the College of Gynecologists had asked that "the management of pregnancies can continue under the conditions usually required".

At the same time, the directors of the AD-PA nursing home called “to consider establishments for the elderly as places of residence and thus guarantee the elderly who reside there the possibility of maintaining family, social and relational ties, etc. which are theirs under the same conditions as for any French ”.
