Covid-19: statement directing the restart of our professional activity.


Last week the RIZIV/INAMI contacted the VBS-GBS asking them to provide for each medical specialty a list of pathologies categorized according to emergency level, to direct the gradual restart of our professional activity which now is severely limited due to the Covid-19 crisis.

After consultation with the endocrinologists regarding these priority consultations, the BES board decided not to draw up a list but provided a statement which you can consult here, in Dutch or in French.


Next BES meeting

The 2020 BES meeting will take place at La Hulpe on Friday October 16th, from 2 p.m. onwards and on Saturday morning October 17th.
