The medical assistance within our out-of-hours medical service (whether in a medical post or via home visits) is provided by experienced MD/GPs.




Consultations are provided in the evenings, at night, on weekends and on bank holidays. The service provides first-line medical care for everyone and at the officially-defined fees.    

Legal Context

The non-profit association GBBW was founded in 2014 by the FAMGB (Fédération des Associations de Médecins Généralistes Bruxellois) in order to ensure the coordination and the management of the actors of the out-of-hours MD/GP service in Brussels and to regroup the different services under a single legal entity. The board of directors of the association is made up of GPs members of the FAMGB. The General Assembly of the GBBW is composed of the 13 member-associations of the FAMGB.
