In need of a hospital? Find out more about hospitals in the region

The Dutch medical system requires you to first make an appointment with your General Practitioner (huisarts) who will refer you to a medical specialist at the hospital if necessary.  
  
Hospitals in the Netherlands are either regional servicing hospitals or university hospitals, which have an additional education and research function.
