Bel 112 bij een levensbedreigende situatie!

Bij verwondingen of spoedeisende klachten kunt u direct naar de praktijk komen.

De praktijk is geopend op werkdagen tussen 08.00 - 17.00 uur. Als u belt dat u eraan komt, kan de huisarts alvast rekening houden met uw komst.

Als u tijdens kantoortijden het gewone nummer belt: 020-6628636 en u toets een 1, dan wordt u met spoed te woord gestaan door de assistent of de dokter.


Wanneer het niet mogelijk is om zelf naar de praktijk te komen, dan kan de huisarts u ook thuis bezoeken. Bijvoorbeeld omdat u te ziek, (tijdelijk) gehandicapt of slecht ter been bent. Belt u alstublieft voor 11.00 om een huisbezoek aan te vragen.

De assistent beoordeelt, eventueel samen met de huisarts, of een huisbezoek afgelegd wordt. In de praktijk zijn de mogelijkheden voor onderzoek en behandeling echter beter. Het huisbezoek is nadrukkelijk niet bedoeld voor mensen die geen tijd of geen vervoer hebben om naar het gewone spreekuur te komen.

General practice-based nurse specialists have their own consulting hours in our practice but they all work supervised by the general practioners.

POH-Somatiek: Somatic Illness: Taking care of patients with diabetes, COPD and asthma. Counselling in quit smoking projects. Management and prevention of cardiovascular disease.

POH- Ouderenzorg: Care of the elderly. Very often elderly people living alone are fragile. They are prone to malnourishment or falling.
