A medical centre at the northern tip of the country?

At night and on weekends, people in the far north of the country often have to travel a long way to the nearest doctor in case of illness. DP MPs André Bauler and Gilles Baum wanted to know from the Minister of Health whether it would not be appropriate to install another medical centre in the north of the country, and what can be done to improve the situation in the short term?

Fro

Ëmmer méi Leit aus der Nordspëtzt bekloe sech driwwer, datt et immens schwéier ass fir an den Owesstonnen, nuets an de Weekend en Dokter ze fannen, deen Hausbesich mécht. Dacks kënnen d‘Leit sech net selwer beweegen, well se Féiwer hunn, ënner enger Verletzung oder engem Malaise leiden. De Moment fiert bal kee Generalist méi owes oder nuets am ieweschten Éislek eraus fir dréngend Visitten ze maachen.

D‘Distanze spille besonnesch bei schlechtem Wieder eng Roll, a wann ee seriö krank ass, dann ass den Transport op Ettelbréck an d‘Klinick oder an d’Maison médicale net evident. 

Aus deene Grënn wollte mir follgend Froen un d‘Madamm Gesondheetsministesch stellen: 

  • A wat fir engem Mooss an zu wat fir engen Auerzäite kann d‘Klinick zu Woltz Patienten en charge huelen? 
  • Ass et méiglech fir am Kanton Clierf eng (Annexe vun der) Maison médicale (vun Ettelbréck) opzemaachen fir der betraffener, staark wuessender Bevëlkerung wäit Deplacementer z‘erspueren? Wéi stuuft d‘Madamm Ministesch d‘Opportunitéit vu sou enger Maison médicale an der Nordspëtzt an? 

Ass d‘Madamm Ministesch bereet fir sech mat de betraffene Gemengen auszutauschen fir kuerzfristeg eng pragmatesch Léisung ze fannen bis eng Maison médicale geschaf ka ginn ?“

Answer

Den Centre Hospitalier du Nord huet eng Policlinique am Spidol zu Woltz en Place gesat wou kleng Urgencen kënnen en charge geholl ginn. D’ Öffnungszäiten sinn vun 7 Auer moies bis 19 Auer owes souwuel an der Woch wéi och den Weekend. Méi schwéier Urgencen ginn am Spidol zu Ettelbréck en Charge geholl.

Doriwwer eraus hält den Gesondheetsministère un der aktueller Praxis fest, dat eng Maison médicale, grad sou wéi eng eventuell Annexe dovun, ëmmer an der direkter Proximitéit vun engem Akkutspidol muss fonctionnéieren. Am Fall vum Kanton Klierf, wéi iwweregens fir all déi aner Deeler vum Land, wou zur Zäit keng Maison médicale an direkter Emgéigend ass, setzt den Gesondheetsministère weiderhin op déi sougenannten Cabinets de groupe, also Praxen wou ob mannst 4 Generalisten schaffen an d‘Öffnungszäiten och op den Owend an Weekends ausgedehnt ginn. An deem Sënn ass och den Wëllen do fir en Austausch mat den betraffene Gemengen fir eng Léisung ze fannen.
