|Section / Question||2.04. Impacts of the pandemic on access to care for people who use Long-Term Care ||
Both senate and National Assembly commissions report significant issues around access to services, both in health and social care, for service users in LTCFs and in receipt of domiciliary care. Some reports exist of care home residents being refused access to secondary care facilities at the beginning of the pandemic (Sources: https://www2.assemblee-nationale.fr/static/15/pdf/rapport/i3633.pdf; http://www.senat.fr/rap/r20-199-1/r20-199-11.pdf). The National Assembly report also notes difficult access to medical equipment such as oxygen therapy equipment, and a lack of named GPs within care homes led many care home workers with the responsibility to administer medical and palliative care.
