Doctors and Medical Practices

All significant health enquiries should begin with your own doctor (general practitioner, GP). S/he is your first point of contact for all matters of health (both physical and mental). If you are not already registered with a doctor locally in Utrecht, please do so at your earliest opportunity. Do not wait until you become unwell before you take action with this! 

Many medical practices are within a 5-10 bike ride from the University College Utrecht campus, and others are spread throughout the city. Some of the closest include:

As with all medical practices, doctors may refer patients to specialists if necessary, to treat physical, psychological or other issues. Many practices also have their own in-house specialists, including mental health professionals.

For those struggling to organise their healthcare upon arrival in the Netherlands, or who require extra support in navigating the sector, ‘HelloDoc’ can offer a telehealth service for when you arrive and need a GP. They also give advice and treatment in case you are not able to register with a GP and require non-urgent medical care.
