USA: A working group of current and former service members raised concerns that women may have a harder time than men being seen by their primary care physicians at Veterans Affairs Department hospitals. The limited access is due to a policy that restricts women to being seen only when those physicians rotate through the women’s health clinics, said Ryan Gallucci, a spokesperson for AmVets, a veteran service organization, reported Air Force Times Aug. 11. If a female veteran’s primary care physician sees patients in the women’s clinic only one afternoon a week, that veteran could see the physician only on that one afternoon. Male veterans, however, could see that physician on any day he takes appointments, Gallucci said: here.
