Expat Healthcare Advice for Brussels

Good "médecins traitants" often don't accept new patients any more. Even in a family without any serious health problems, it pays to have one, so do invest some time in finding a good one: Ask colleagues, neighbours and so on. Belgians in general are happy to help and give advice.

Emergency Medical Care in Brussels

St. Luc University clinic, CHIREC Etterbeek/Ixelles, Edith Cavell, Cliniques du Parc Léopold. Most are in some kind of public/private partnership, and in terms of quality of service, it doesn't make much of a difference what the ownership is. Many of them are specialised in certain fields; if you are in need of long-term treatment and/or an operation, collect a few opinions first. Emergency services are sometimes overloaded but solid quality.

Quality of Healthcare in Surrounding Area

I went to Antwerp (Berchem University clinic) once for a knee surgery. It was decided to postpone the surgery by a year or two, so can't really comment on this. This clinic has an excellent reputation for all kinds of orthopedic and ports-related problems. We don't have nay other experience on this.

Prescription Medicines

Never had any problems concerning this; there seems to be a pharmacy on every second corner and what's not on stock will usually be there the next day. But we've never had any special needs either. My wife is more favourable of pythotherapy and homeopathy, and that's also readily available.
