ISLAM: RULES FOR MUSLIM PATIENTS BY FLEMISH GYNAECOLOGISTS
More rigid regulations in the Flemish hospitals for Muslim patients, who refuse gynaecological care of male doctors: from today their desire will be respected, but not in cases of emergency, circumstances under which the doctor will be allowed to ignore the request of the patient for the sake of their health. The female gynaecologists have elaborated a real code of good conduct in order to treat the Islamic patients in cases of emergency or during night watch, when a female doctor is not always available. According to the new regulations, the medical personnel will have to indulge the patient's request only if it is put in writing or only if the ill patient herself asks for the intervention of a female doctor and not her husband or her family. The code of good conduct has obtained the approval of the female gynaecologists, of the association of the doctors' unions of and the centre for gender equality and fight against racism. (ANSAmed).
