The Medical Centre for family doctors (MCH) was established in 1966 by family doctors and has since then developed into a fixed value for the family doctor and his patients. In essence, the MCH is an outpatient clinic (consultation centre) with a Leuven and a Wezembeek-Oppem branch. Consultation after referral is the best guarantee for a close cooperation between your GP and the doctor-specialist. This is why we feel a referral letter is important. In both centres, about 60 specialists hold their consultation. They also have a medical imaging department at their disposal. The outpatient clinic is inseparably linked to the laboratory where your GP can have blood and other analyses carried out. The laboratory of the MCH has a widespread reputation because of its high quality and smooth service for the patient.
