– The number of cases and what they were about has to a large extent followed the infection curves, says Anna Stålkrantz, administrator at the patient board in the Jönköping County Region in a press release.
According to Anna Stålkrantz, many complaints at the beginning of the pandemic were that there was a lack of protective equipment and that guidelines were unclear. Later, a larger proportion of the cases received by the patient board were about the availability of care, that operations and treatments have been canceled due to the corona pandemic. This is shown by the report from the country’s patient committees.
In total, the country’s 21 patient boards received 3,337 cases linked to covid-19 in 2020, which is approximately ten percent of the total number of cases received by the patient boards in the country last year.
Anyone who wants to complain or comment on publicly funded health care in regions and municipalities can turn to the patient board. Dental care is also part of the patient committees’ area of responsibility.
