Rescue helicopter at the North Hospital

DP MPs André Bauler and Gusty Graas have asked the Minister of Health and the Minister of the Interior questions about the rescue helicopters that have been frequently deployed at the North Hospital in recent years. Among other things, they wanted to know how the funding is organised, how often they have been deployed beyond the country's borders and whether there are plans to find a new location for the helicopters in the medium term.


Den Helikopter beim Nordspidol ass an de leschte Joren dacks zum Asaz komm, virun allem am Éislek. Dat konnt etlech Mënscheliewe retten, zemol an enger Regioun mat enger schwiereger Topografie.

An deem Kader wollte mir der Madamm Ministesch fir Gesondheet a Sozialversécherung an dem Här Inneminister follgend Froe stellen:

  • Wéi oft koum den Helikopter beim Ettelbrécker Spidol zanter 2018 zum Asaz? 
  • Wéi vill Flig goungen iwwer eis Landesgrenzen eraus ?
  • Stëmmt et, datt virgesinn ass, fir mëttelfristeg en anere Site fir den Helikopter ze sichen?
  • Wéi ass de Finanzement vum Helikopter konkret organiséiert?“

Strengthening the rights of pregnant self-employed workers

Pregnant employees can apply for dispensation from work before their maternity leave, for example if they are unable to work for health reasons. The self-employed do not have this option, which can have a negative impact on the recalculation of their maternity benefits.
DP MPs Carole Hartmann and Mandy Minella have asked the relevant ministers whether paid dispensation from work or an equivalent mechanism will be introduced for pregnant self-employed workers.


Is a pharmacy coming to Bettendorf?

In 2023, the then Minister of Health rejected the installation of a pharmacy in Bettendorf. As the population in the region around Bettendorf continues to grow, DP MP André Bauler has asked the new Minister of Health whether she would reconsider her predecessor’s decision. Has the Minister of Health possibly already been contacted by the municipality of Bettendorf and could other municipalities get a new pharmacy?


Introduction of skin cancer screening?

Since 2008, skin cancer screening has been available in Germany for all policyholders aged 35 and over. As a result, many cases of skin cancer are detected earlier.
DP MPs André Bauler and Gilles Baum wanted to know from the Minister for Health how skin cancer figures have developed here in the country since 2013, whether such screening would also be useful in Luxembourg and why only figures for melanoma (black skin cancer) are collected.
