Peer advisors are also part of the buurtteam: people who have a lot of personal experience in the field of care and support.

Make an appointment online, ask for a repeat prescription or see a lab result?

Helmie Groennews, Practice news

Make an appointment online, order repeat prescriptions and view your letters and results with an explanation from your GP? This can be done through the patient portal in our GP information system Tetrahis.

You need to contact our practice for the use of this portal. You need a mobile phone number and a working email address. You can only use your own portal per mail address and phone number. For example, if you want to make an appointment for your children, you can always mention the name and date of birth of the child for whom you make the appointment.

After activation, you will receive an email with instructions to activate your portal.

You can then schedule an appointment, request an e-consultation with your GP, pass on a repeat prescription or access your safe, where your results and letters are kept.

If your portal is no longer working, always try to apply for a new password first. If you continue to experience problems please contact the practice.

Holiday cancelled?

Anne Mieke Achterhuisnews, Practice news

If you suddenly have to cancel your holiday, travel insurance or plane measure often asks for a medical statement from your GP. It is no longer allowed to give off your own GP. The reason for this is that we as your own general practitioner cannot give objective and independent judgment.
Our advice is that you write a letter to the travel agency, the travel company or your insurance for the reason for cancelling. Of course, you can make an appointment to discuss the reason for cancellation so that everything is listed in your file.
If your insurance does wish for the medical information, they can request them from us in writing through their medical advisor. In that case, we will provide a medical report containing factual information, but without advice or recommendation. It is then up to the medical advisor to make an opinion with the information or to give an opinion.
