UZ Brussel partly postpones non-urgent interventions

01 December 2021

Because of the increasing number of Covid infections and the increasing pressure on the health sector, the government decided that the hospitals have to partially postpone non-urgent surgeries the next two weeks. This is to preserve the necessary capacity in the Intensive Care department and to enable the reallocation of doctors and nurses. This also applies to the UZ Brussel. Hospital staff contact the patients concerned. Urgent and necessary interventions, non-surgical dayhospital activities and consultations continue at this time. We are monitoring the situation day by day. The hospital is doing everything possible to create the safest possible healthcare environment. We also ask that our patients respect all safety measures.
