Should the emergency departments for children in the north be expanded?

Even children with minor injuries are often sent from the north to the capital's paediatric clinic. DP MPs Corinne Cahen and Carole Hartmann wanted to know from the Minister of Health why the CHdN's emergency departments cannot be guaranteed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and how many children from the north are sent to the Kannerklinik.


« Sur le site du Centre hospitalier du Nord on peut lire que les urgences pédiatriques sont ouvertes 7 jours sur 7, de 8h à 20h.

Il nous revient néanmoins que des enfants de moins de 16 ans doivent être emmenés à la Kannerklinik par l’ambulance du CGDIS, même avec des blessures mineures comme des plaies qui nécessites quelques points de suture. 

Par conséquent nous aimerions savoir de Madame la Ministre de la Santé et de la Sécurité sociale :

  • Comment se fait-il que le Centre hospitalier du Nord ne puisse pas garantir des urgences pédiatriques 7jours sur 7, 24 heures du 24 ?
  • Pourquoi est-ce que les urgentistes ne pourraient pas s’occuper d’enfants, surtout s’il s’agit « uniquement » de refermer des plaies ?
  • Combien d’enfants de moins de 16 ans du Nord du pays sont emmenés par les ambulances à la Kannerklinik ?
  • Est-il envisagé d’élargir les urgences pédiatriques dans le Nord du pays ? »

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.
