The Principality will this week welcome paediatrician Dr. Stéphanie de Smet to the ranks of the SAMU 06. Dr. de Smet will be a hospital practitioner in the resuscitation and neonatal department and will lead neonatal and paediatric services.
Paediatricians are responsible for the health of children aged from 0 to 18 years and play a vital role with families.
“In view of the needs of the population, it was essential to recruit a paediatrician who supports the health of children and maintains a relationship of confidence in parents from birth to adulthood,” said the minister of Social Affairs and Health Didier Gamerdinger.
Appointments can be scheduled on Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 8am to 1pm and 2pm to 6.30pm. Tuesday hours are from 10am to 1pm and 2pm to 9pm.
Time slots will be provided every morning to accommodate children in emergency situations. The ward is located on the ground floor of 26 rue Grimaldi – 98000 Monaco, telephone: 184.108.40.206.
National Council President Stéphane Valeri has visited the Grimaldi Forum to thank the team behind the screening campaign, while also encouraging more people to take the Covid-19 antibody test.
Prince Albert has been tested at a Covid-19 screening centre in Monaco to raise awareness about the government’s campaign to have as many people of the Principality tested as possible.
Monaco’s primary students made their return to school on Monday, the final group to do so in the government’s three-phase plan to lift the lockdown.
The Principality ordered some 11.5 million masks at the height of the crisis. Now those masks are being safely stored by the government for a rainy day.
