Statement on COVID-19 from the European Forum for Primary Care: Reducing the Impacts on Vulnerable Groups
On behalf of its members and partnering institutions, and based on four focus groups and a two-part survey, the EFPC has prepared a statement on Covid-19.
It is our intention that this statement highlights the impacts that the current COVID-19 pandemic will have on two vulnerable groups: within the field of mental health and within elderly populations. Furthermore, we wish to highlight the collateral damage as a result of health systems operating within ‘COVID-19 Mode’.
Based upon this statement, the EFPC has also created several messages for health policy which can be used as a rough guide when implementing and/or creating policy.
