International newcomers

Are you an international newcomer in Amsterdam, and searching for suitable health care? Our general practitioner (GP) practice can help you!

Research done in the international community has shown that Dutch Healthcare, for all its strengths, does not always meet the needs and expectations of internationals. Since more internationals start living in Amsterdam, we have adapted our GP practice and trained our doctors to meet the healthcare needs and expectations of internationals.

It can be challenging to be in a different country with a different health system and explaining your medical situation in a foreign language. We understand the challenges that internationals, and their families, face after settling in the Netherlands. Our GPs take time to listen to your personal story and are eager to understand what is important to you!

To satisfy the healthcare needs of internationals, our GP practice meets the following criteria:
Professionals at our practice take the time to get acquainted with our international patients and help them find their way in Dutch Healthcare
Professionals of our practice completed a special training program
Professionals of our practice are proficient in English
Information provided by our practice is also made available in English
Our practice welcomes suggestions and feedback from our international patients
Our practice participates every 2 years in a H4i survey amongst international patients and uses its results to further improve its services
