The role of a general practitioner in the Netherlands is much bigger than in most countries. We therefore ask you to read below information carefully. For any complaint, you always visit a GP first, and you only go to the hospital after receiving a referral from your GP to see a specialist.
To see a general practitioner, you ALWAYS need to make an appointment first. You can reach us from Monday to Friday between 08.00 and 12.00 by phone. Making an appointment can also be done online through this website. If you call us before 12.00, we can schedule an appointment with you the same day.
While planning an appointment with our assistant on the phone, she will ask you for the reason for encounter. Our assistant is educated to assess the type of issue as well as its potential emergency. She helps you to determine who is best to see. Our assistant as well as the general practitioner has common law duty of confidentiality. In case you want to discuss more than one issue with your practitioner, let you know us while making your appointment so that we allow for more time.
In case of emergency or first aid, you will be helped immediately. Please ring us beforehand so that we are prepared when you arrive.

Evening-, night- and weekend service
All GP’s in Eindhoven work together at the ‘Centrale Huisartsen Post’ or emergency center to provide service in the evenings, during the nights and weekends. For urgent questions or emergencies you can call the ‘spoedpost’ at 088-8765151. The address is Michelangelolaan 2, 5623 EJ Eindhoven, at the ‘Spoedeisende Hulp’, in the Catherina Hospital.
For the emergency pharmacy, the phone number is 040-243666. The address is Michelangelolaan 2, 5623 EJ Eindhoven.
For simple matters or questions you can use the option of a telephone consultation. You contact your assistant and she plans a time that you will be called back.
For the rest results you can call everyday between 08.00 – 12.00 o’clock.
For seriously ill patients that have a medical necessity to see a GP, there is the option of a house call. This applies in cases such as you being too ill, temporary handicapped or not mobile. Our assistant decides – possibly after discussing with the general practitioner – if a house call is feasible. Keep in mind that our facilities for tests and treatment are better in our clinic.
House calls are not intended for people with no time or transport to come to the regular consultation hours.
Our medical assistant is the first person to welcome you when you call the clinic. She makes the appointments for the consultation hours, the home visits and the telephone consultations. She has the answers to the most frequently asked questions about referrals and prescriptions. You can also call her for test results of urine or blood tests and recurring prescriptions.
Our assistant also does the following treatments:
– Measuring blood pressure
– Bandaging, swathing or taping of wounds
– Cleaning ears
– Removing stitches
– Pregnancy test
– Urine test
– Sugar and Hb checks
– CRP test
– Warts removal (once a month)
Our assistant works on appointment. You can call between 08.00 – 12.00 to make an appointment.
Please check carefully with your health insurance what is covered and what you need to pay yourself. Your GP is not responsible for any costs made. If you have a Dutch insurance in most times there are no costs to visit the GP, but laboratory and other diagnostic facilities are extra paid for, up to ±380 Euro ‘own risk’.
