About Our Practice

We are medical doctors who work in General Practice. We established Schuman Medical Practice in May 2007 when we moved to Brussels from the southeast of England where we had worked for the previous 15 years. We see our move to Brussels as an opportunity to combine the best of UK general medical practice with a more personal approach to health care.

Dr. Verheul 


After qualifying in 1984 from Kings College Hospital in London, I trained as a General Practitioner and worked in a busy general practice in North Kent (England) for 17 years. In 2007 I moved to Brussels with my family, and Dr Stockley and I took over an English speaking medical practice in the European quarter. I enjoy my work as a family doctor and medical generalist with the diversity of cultures and languages that are found in Brussels. I prefer to work in English but also speak Dutch and some French. 

Dr Verheul went on retirement since the summer of 2021. A new doctor will be joining Eric Jonckers soon. 

Doctor Eric Jonckers 

After finishing my basic medical degree in 2003 at the KULeuven, I trained for another 2 years as a General Practitioner in group practice in Beerse, Belgium. After qualifying as a GP, I left Belgium and became a medical missionary in Pemba Mozambique. I was there for more than a decade as part of a wonderful medical team. Together we founded a primary health care facility, as well as running a mobile medical clinic in rural African villages. There I discovered how true love ‘has hands and feet’ and how to express this in caring for the sick and needy. Now I have returned to the multicultural capital of my own country Belgium, wanting to care for the sick, whatever nationality or background they come from. My desire is to see people healthy, finding true well-being in life.
I am Belgian, and married. I am fluent in Dutch and English, and I speak basic Portuguese and some French.
