More pharmacies in Luxembourg in the future?

Population growth is increasing demands in a number of different areas. The supply of medicines and related products is one of these. Against this background, our MPs Gilles Baum and André Bauler have asked the Minister of Health, among other questions, if an increase in the pharmacy quota is planned for this decade.

« Il va sans dire que la croissance démographique de ces dernières années fait croître les demandes sur les plans les plus divers. Ainsi le nombre de pharmacies a été révisé à la hausse depuis le début du siècle afin de faire face aux demandes de la population en matière d’approvisionnement en médicaments et produits assimilés. Voilà pourquoi nous aimerions poser les questions suivantes à Madame la Ministre de la Santé :

  • Quel est le nombre de pharmacies qui exercent actuellement au Luxembourg ?
  • Est-il prévu d’augmenter le contingent des pharmacies au cours de cette décennie ?
  • Dans l’affirmative, quel sera le nombre programmé par le ministère de la Santé ?
  • Quels sont les critères retenus pour décider de l’implantation d’une officine en une région déterminée ?
  • Dans quels cantons ou communes du pays le ministère prévoit-il d’établir une ou plusieurs nouvelles pharmacies ? »
