A PET scan for Ettelbruck hospital?

Luxembourg is to get a second PET scan. DP MPs André Bauler and Carole Hartmann have asked the Minister of Health whether it would not make sense to install this device at Ettelbruck Hospital.


Mir si gewuer ginn, datt e weidere PET-Scan an engem Spidol soll installéiert ginn. Aktuell ass jo ee PET-Scan an der Stad, am Centre Hospitalier, ugesiddelt, ma et wier wierklech exzellent, wann dee weideren Apparat kéint an d’Ettelbrécker Klinik kommen. All kriibskrank Leit, déi nämlech am Norde vum Land wunnen an op sou e medezineschen Apparat ugewise sinn, musse wäit Weeër op sech huelen, verbonne mat engem enormen Zäitopwand. Op Ettelbréck kéinten och Patienten aus dem Zentrum an aus dem Weste vum Land kommen – net ze vergiessen och aus dem Kanton Iechternach.

Aus dësem Grond wollte mir d’Madamm Gesondheetsministesch Folgendes froen:

  • Ass et virgesinn, datt en neie PET-Scan op Ettelbréck komme soll? Läit eng Demande vun der Ettelbrécker Klinik vir?
  • Wa jo, fir wéini kéint mat sou engem Apparat zu Ettelbréck gerechent ginn?“

Do rapid diagnostic tests help against antibiotic shortages?

France is considering only allowing antibiotics to be prescribed if a rapid diagnostic test is carried out beforehand. This would make it possible to determine with certainty whether the infection is bacterial or viral.
This could on the one hand counteract the lack of antibiotics and on the other hand reduce antibiotic resistance.
DP MPs Gilles Baum and Gusty Graas asked the Minister of Health how many antibiotics have been prescribed in Luxembourg in the last five years and whether doctors should be made more aware of prescribing diagnostic tests.


Is therapeutic housing being commercialised?

Therapeutic housing is currently offered by approved outpatient psychiatric services to people suffering from mental health problems.
Rumours are now circulating that the Ministry of Health is planning to entrust the management of therapeutic housing to a commercial company.
DP MPs Gusty Graas and Gilles Baum asked the Minister for Health whether these rumours were true and, if so, why this course of action was being pursued rather than supporting the existing players in approved outpatient psychiatry.


Is there also abuse of “proton pump inhibitors” in Luxembourg?

According to a recent scientific study, the long-term use of so-called “proton pump inhibitors” (IPP), which are used to treat stomach problems, increases the risk of developing dementia. The DP MP Gusty Graas asked the responsible ministers whether they are aware of this study, what conclusions they draw from it and whether figures on the use of IPPs in Luxembourg are known.
