PASS-PSY (Permanence of access to care in psychiatry)
The PASS in the psychiatry department of Edouard TOULOUSE Hospital opened in 2010.
It takes care of people without health insurance or unable to access their rights, in a precarious situation, presenting physical disorders and experiencing difficulties in getting care, due to psychological or psychiatric suffering.
It offers general medical consultations, nursing and social interviews.
The role of the PASS is to :
– Provide free care and treatment while awaiting the patient’s entitlement
– Assess their health state
– Reintegrate them into a coordinated healthcare circuit.
– Provide comprehensive social support
