What are the consequences of the resignation of six cardiologists from the North Hospital?

Six cardiologists from the North Hospital want to resign. DP MPs Carole Hartmann and Gilles Baum asked the responsible ministers what impact these resignations will have on patient healthcare and whether unpaid on-call duties might have played a role in the doctors' decision.


« Le Centre Hospitalier du Nord (CHdN) a confirmé la démission de six cardiologues pour la nouvelle année.

À ce sujet, nous aimerions poser les questions suivantes à Madame la Ministre de la Santé et à Monsieur le Ministre de la Sécurité sociale :

  • Quel est l’impact de ces démissions sur le fonctionnement du service de cardiologie du CHdN ? Les patients doivent-ils s’attendre à des délais d’attente ou à des reports voire à des annulations de rendez-vous ?
  • Quelles sont les raisons de ces démissions des six cardiologues ? Les gardes non rémunérées ont-elles eu une influence sur la décision des médecins ? Y a-t-il un risque qu’à part la cardiologie, d’autres services du CHdN voire d’autres établissements hospitaliers soient confrontés à des démissions de médecins spécialisés ?
  • Le problème des gardes non rémunérées existe déjà depuis un certain temps. Où en est ce dossier actuellement ? Quand est-ce que tous les médecins qui effectuent des gardes dans les hôpitaux peuvent-ils s’attendre à ce que ces dernières soient rémunérées ? »
