The GP practice is open from Monday to Friday between 8.00 hrs and 17.00 hrs.
The general practitioner (GP) belongs to the primary health care. For all your health problems, both physical as well as psychological, you will first be seen by the GP. The GP can treat most health problems.
When necessary the GP will refer you to a specialist at the hospital. It is not possible to visit the hospital without a referral letter.
After office hours (weekend/evening/night) you can go to the Huisartspost Gelderse Vallei in Ede. This is only for medical problems which are urgent and cannot wait until the next day.
You always have to call first for an appointment: phone 0318-200800
