It goes without saying you can see a GP of your choice. Perform a Google search: huisarts, streetname, city.
Your search result will list all general practitioners in your area. It is not uncommon the GP will bill you during your visit. It is customary to pay upfront and get reimbursed afterwards by the insurance company.
You can also visit the following website with information about the general practitioners in Delft:
In the Netherlands the first one to see, when you don’t feel well is a general practitioner (GP). He/she will advise you on what to do, look for the cause and suggest treatments. You need a referral from a general practitioner for medicines, a medical test or to see a specialist in the hospital.
In the Netherlands, you can’t go directly to the hospital. In case of a real emergency the emergency number is 112.
Also please see the question “Who can I contact in the evening, night or weekend when the general practitioner is not available?”
When you feel sick during your GP’s of duty hours you can call him/she to get the details of an on-duty GP service. In every city there is a GP service website/phone number you can call. During a brief telephone interview the GP service will determine if it is necessary for you to visit the GP service (called huisartsenpost).
For Delft for example: huisartsenpost Delft.
Phone number: 015-2511930
When you work for Flex Delft, for example as a teaching assistant, you always have to change to the Dutch basic health insurance. Even when you work only a few hours in the month. The Dutch basic health insurance has to start from the moment your employment contract starts.
Even if you are in a part-time job besides your study, for example when you work in a restaurant or shop, you need to change your insurance.
