The COVID-19 pandemic caused major disruptions to healthcare, with 70% of respiratory patients in Spain unable to attend their regularly scheduled medical appointments. Despite recovery efforts, nearly 43% are still waiting to have cancelled appointments rescheduled, meaning that many have been living without essential consultations for over a year. 

Recognising that access to care was already a challenge for asthma and COPD patients in Spain, FENAER has produced a form to help patients claim their right to regular care. The document can be used to detail appointments and services that have been delayed, and can be used to request in writing rescheduling to hospitals and healthcare providers.  

Read more about their initiative here.

Find the downloadable form here in Spanish.
