General medicine
& paediatrics

We see adults and children with a wide range of physical and mental health problems. We can address most issues ourselves but, if required, we provide referrals to specialists or paramedical professionals who also consult in English.

We also run a Healthy Baby and Child Clinic, where routine developmental checks and vaccinations are carried out. Appointments in this clinic are allocated per demand and at a separate time to all other consultations to avoid the risk of contact with unwell patients.

Please book an appointment online where possible.
For Healthy Baby and Child Clinic please email us on info@berlaymonthealth.eu
If you need to speak to a doctor regarding an urgent medical problem, you can phone 0485 76 75 77.

Chronic disease
management

If you suffer from a chronic illness (such as diabetes, hypertension, asthma, heart disease, hypothyroidism or obesity) or require long-term medication, we provide regular assessment and follow-up. This involves review of your health, investigations if necessary, and provision of repeat prescriptions. This allows us to tailor your management plan to your needs and ensures best clinical care and safe prescribing. In more complicated cases, we can refer to English speaking specialist doctors in Brussels.

Preventative
care

VACCINATIONS

We provide all routine childhood vaccinations in our
Healthy Baby and Child Clinic.
We also offer all other vaccinations e.g influenza, HPV, meningococcal group b vaccine (Bexsero), boosters for adults and travel vaccinations except yellow fever.
For more information on vaccinations please email info@berlaymonthealth.eu

SCREENING

At the practice, we carry out screening for STIs in men and women, cervical cancer, and bowel cancer. We also advise on and refer for more specialised procedures such as colonoscopy and mammography.

HEALTH CHECKS

We offer routine health checks which include general medical examination, gynaecological check-ups, appropriate investigations and advice on healthy living and disease prevention. We also advise on weight management and smoking cessation.

Blood tests and ECGs can be carried out at the practice.

INSURANCE AND EMPLOYMENT MEDICALS

These take a considerable amount of time and require a double appointment. Please book two consecutive slots online, or email info@brusselshealth.eu

Gynaecology
& sexual health

We carry out gynaecological examinations and cervical screening (Pap smears) in women, and screening for sexually transmitted infections in both men and women.

We diagnose and treat many conditions ourselves, and can refer to specialists in more complicated cases, or where surgical intervention is needed.
