    I feel sick (nausea). What do I do? Who do I call or see?

    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?”
