General Information
In the Netherlands your General Practitioner (huisarts) should always be your initial contact for all medical matters. The GP has access to many hospital facilities and can - on short notice if necessary - refer you to medical specialists. The GP keeps your medical record up to date and prescribes your medication. In case of illness as well as for general consultations on less urgent matters, first phone your GP. A trained medical assistant will answer your call and note your complaints in order to properly schedule your appointment.

The Dutch Board of General Practitioners (NHG) has developed the NHG Practice Guidelines. These are guidelines for GPs, formulated by GPs. The GPs must abide by the NHG Practice Guidelines.

Go to www.nhg.artsennet.nl where you can find an English summery of NHG guidelines.
