All significant health enquiries should begin with your own doctor (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:
- Campus Uithof Huisartsenpraktijk
- Huisartsenpraktijk Koningslaan
- Huisartsenpraktijk Bosboomstraat
- Huisartsenpraktijk Daltonlaan
- Huisartsenpraktijk Homeruslaan
- DocLine Utrecht (Online GP)
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.
