Objective:

to identify the difficulties of access to health care faced bypatients and how they impact on prognosis and treatment of their disease.

Methods:

205 patients of the Hospital de Base do Distrito Federal were interviewed from August 2007 to July 2008.

Results:

52.5% of patients were not regularly monitored by primarycare. They waited over 2 months in 91.8% of cases for a last referral level medical appointment and 7.4% of users had not been assisted after 12 months. Patients treated with less than a month of waiting had no impact on their life (73.9%), and from two months of waiting, 54.9% had some involvement (psychological, social or biological).

Discussion:

more than half of patients treated at tertiary level in the Federal District does not have a regular follow-up in primary care which reinforces the need to strengthen primary health care activities. The delay in care resulted in worsening health, psychological and socialconsequences for patients.(AU)
