Brussels, (Brussels Morning)- The paediatric oncology department of UZ Brussel is no longer able to receive young cancer patients undergoing acute treatment. The patients who are in follow-up treatment can still stay. The acute staff shortage has been a problem for UZ Brussel for some time now.
Spokesperson for UZ Brussel Petra Van San emphasises that not the entire department will be closed. “It is a temporary situation due to staff shortages,” it sounds.
