Two new health centres in the north and east of the country

The south and the centre of the country will receive two new health centres. The Ministry of Health is also investigating where new health centres could be built in the north and east of the country. DP MPs Carole Hartmann and André Bauler have asked the Minister of Health which cantons are being considered as locations.

« Dans un communiqué de presse récent, le ministère de la Santé précise que les soins primaires constituent un pilier majeur de notre système de santé et qu’il est important de renforcer l’offre pour assurer aux patients la prise en charge la meilleure. À cet effet, il a désigné les futurs sites pour deux nouvelles maisons médicales de garde au centre et au sud du pays. Elles viendront remplacer les structures qui sont en place à l’heure actuelle.

Le Ministère de la Santé note aussi que des recherches actives pour trouver un nouveau site approprié au service de la région nord du pays, ainsi que pour une offre supplémentaire à l’est, sont également en cours.

Voilà pourquoi nous aimerions poser les questions suivantes à Madame la Ministre de la Santé:

  • Madame la Ministre peut-elle informer dans quelle région de la circonscription Nord une telle structure pourrait être mise en place? Serait-ce plutôt le canton de Wiltz qui dispose déjà d’une infrastructure hospitalière?
  • Madame la Ministre, quelle région de la circonscription Est pourrait-être envisagée pour la mise en place d’une nouvelle maison médicale?
  • Des consultations avec les partenaires concernés (médecins, cliniques, …) ont-elles déjà eu lieu dans ce contexte ? »

Answer

As far as the North is concerned, the Ministry of Health and the Directorate of Health are in close contact with the municipal authorities to find a new location for the current medical center. The creation of medical centers is also actively supported in the areas further away from the main hospital sites.

These bugs can indeed cause very serious damage in vines, orchards or vegetable gardens.

What about the validity of the Covid-19 vaccination?

Some countries restrict the validity of the Covid-19 vaccination for entry into their country. For people who were vaccinated at the beginning of the year, the validity of the vaccination will therefore expire soon. The DP MPs Claude Lamberty and Carole Hartmann asked the responsible ministers whether Luxembourg also plans to introduce such a validity limit and what can be done at EU level.
