Minister of Health Frank Vandenbroucke (Vooruit) receives a high grade of insufficient from Belgian doctors for the policy being pursued. This is evident from a survey by the Artsenkrant and its French-language counterpart Le Journal du Médecin in January among 669 general practitioners and specialists. Where Vandenbroucke achieved a score of 3.9 out of 10 a year earlier, the minister now has to make do with an average of 2.7 out of 10.

Flemish Minister of Health Hilde Crevits (CD&V) does slightly better and receives 4.5 out of 10 from the survey participants. The entire Vivaldi government scores 3.8 out of 10, while the Flemish government of the medical corps scores just 4.9 out of 10. does not get half the points. The voting intentions of doctors were also surveyed and a majority in Flanders (46 percent) indicated that they would vote for N-VA on June 12. CD&V and Open VLD follow with just under 10 percent and 9 percent respectively. Among French-speaking doctors, MR (40 percent) and Les Engagés (18 percent) are the most popular.

Finally, the doctors were also asked some questions about current themes. It shows that 64 percent of doctors think it is “good” to “very good” to eliminate unreasonable income differences between general practitioners and specialists and between specialists themselves. About 27 percent of doctors indicate that they want to deconvention and call the agreement that was concluded between doctors and health insurance funds at the end of 2023 “worthless”. On the other hand, 45 percent say they fully conventionalize and 5 percent partially. The new financing model for general practitioners (the so-called New Deal) has the approval of 26 percent of respondents, while 44 percent consider this a “bad” to “very bad” system.
