Emergency care

In the event of a medical emergency, call 112.  Most larger hospitals have Accident and Emergency services. Look for signs for ‘Spoedeisende hulp’, ‘SEH', or ‘eerste hulp’.

Under Dutch law, any public or private health organisation is required to help an incoming patient in case of an emergency. Your nationality or your insurance status does not matter. You will have to identity yourself with an ID before you can receive treatment. If you are rushed to the hospital and are not able to present an ID, you will have to identify yourself officially within two weeks of your hospital visit. 

Services are intended for serious situations only in case of accidents. If you end up utilising these services for non-urgent assistance, you may have to cover the costs yourself.  

Out of hours GP care 

If you need to speak to or visit a GP out of hours, you can contact the Hadoks service. They have two help points in the City of The Hague(‘huisartsenpost’):
