Medical Information


If someone’s life is in danger, always call 112!

Do you stay and need help? In the Netherlands it's not possible to visit a hospital on your own initiative for medical help. You must first contact a local doctor in the place of residence.

A visit to the doctor without an appointment is usually not possible. You should always make an appointment by phone.

Keep the name of your own doctor and health insurance number to hand. If you are taking medication, take the names of the medication to the appointment.
