general practitioners and emergency care
The general practitioner is the primary care provider if you need urgent medical advice. If you live in a host family, you can contact your host family's GP. If you live in a shelter location, you have been assigned a GP. More information about this can be found on the municipality's website .
If the GP believes that you should be examined by a specialist that same day, he will refer you to the emergency department. Outside office hours (evening, night, weekend and public holidays) you can contact the general practitioner.
The emergency number 112 is for emergency care, so if your life or that of someone else is in immediate danger. For example, if you or someone else is seriously injured and urgently needs medical help. More information: www.antoniusziekenhuis.nl/spoedeisende-hulp-huisartsenpost .
TRANSPORTATION FROM/TO THE HOSPITAL DURING THE DAY
The shuttle bus starts at St. Antonius Woerden and St. Antonius Hospital Nieuwegein and runs to the three locations according to a fixed timetable. We advise you to only travel by shuttle bus if this is really necessary and no other transport is possible. In this way we ensure that there is enough space for patients who want to visit the hospital. Check the website for the timetable: www.antoniusziekenhuis.nl/pendelbus .
