What to do in case of medical emergency
Try calling your doctor (GP) first in the case of urgent matters, as they can alert the hospital that you are coming and what treatment you may need.
If your GP is not available, then you should call the Huisartsenpost (family doctor post) in case the matter is something that can be handled without involving hospital care. Contact details vary in each region. To check yours, internet search "huisartsenpost" with your city name.
