In the Netherlands, the family doctor/general practitioner (GP) is the first point of contact regarding medical issues. Your GP can refer you to a hospital for specialist medical care when necessary.

Hospitals in the Netherlands fall into two different categories:

  • University Medical Centers / Academic Hospitals: these hospitals have a strong link with a university. They provide complex specialist care and are active in medical research. Often they also function as teaching hospitals, providing training for healthcare practitioners.
    In Nijmegen: Radboud UMC.
  • General regional hospitals: these hospitals offer excellent standard medical care for less specialized problems. When necessary they can refer patients to more specialized hospitals.
    In Nijmegen: Canisius Wilhelmina Ziekenhuis (CWZ) (website in Dutch).

If you do not live in Nijmegen, find a hospital on the Zorgkaart Nederland website, where you select your city on the left.
