The working group on access will contribute to shaping EPF’s vision and activities in this area from the patients’ perspective. It will also strengthen the evidence base on health inequalities and access. Ultimately the group will put access from the patients’ perspective higher on the political agenda.
The Working Group on access has defined priorities in its work plan 2015:
To agree on a common concept of access from the patient perspective;
To make recommendations on indicators of access, that accurately reflect the patients’ experience;
To work on concept and structure for a questionnaire to EPF members on access to identify gaps, barriers and successful models;
