One of the first things to do upon arrival is to register online with a general practitioner. You will also need to confirm your registration during a registration appointment.
Your doctor is your first contact person for all health related questions and problems. Medical specialists, hospital tests and prescription drugs are only accessible with a referral from your general practitioner. Specialized medical services include surgeons, eye specialist, ENT doctors, gynecologist and orthopedist. You can find a general practitioner through this website (in Dutch only) by downloading the lists of general practitioners for Mid-Twente, Enschede and/or Almelo.
