Check our locations

Are you residing in one of our neighborhoods, but haven’t got a General Practice doctor yet (for instance, because you recently moved)? If so, we can register you as our patient. It is important that you live nearby, as the doctor must be able to reach your home within 15 minutes in case of an emergency.

In case of an exceeding number of registrations, we give priority to patients residing within the health care center’s neighborhood(s), who haven’t got a GP yet.

About the Dutch system of General Practitioners

Tuesday 8 august 2023

The General Practitioner (GP), called a huisarts in Dutch, is unknown in many health systems. Also, the role of a Dutch GP can be very different from the role of GP’s in other healthcare systems. The Dutch GP (your ‘huisarts’) is always the first healthcare provider you go to, even if you would prefer to see a specialist.

This kind of essential information and much more you can find on This website is for anyone seeking reliable information in English about the Dutch General Practitioners system. For instance:

  • Who to call in case of an emergency;
  • For which questions and complaints you can visit your doctor (huisarts);
  • What to expect from a Dutch doctor;
  • Why Dutch doctors are less likely to prescribe antibiotics;
  • Etcetera.

The information on is made by, an independent website for health(care) information, developed and maintained by the Dutch College of GP’s.
