Dutch GP care

A new country, but what about your health?
Moving to another country is a lot to handle. Many things to take care of while you still have to get accustomed to this new place. However, healthcare is one of those things you should take care of right away.

Do you have a GP?
All Dutch occupants who live and work here, are obliged to have a healthcare insurance and a General Practitioner. Being registered to a GP also lowers the healthcare costs compared to visiting first aid or a hospital. There are GP’s who run a solo practice and GP’s who work in healthcare centres.

Why choose a GP in a healthcare centre?
In a healthcare centre you will find your GP, but also other healthcare professionals like physiotherapists and pharmacists. Therefore, it is easy to coordinate various appointments and it enables better teamwork. Better and faster care by more professionals, and all behind one door.
