General practitioner and first aid

Have you just moved to or within Breda? Then it is important to look for a general practitioner in the area. The general practitioner is your first contact when you have a physical or mental complaint. The general practitioner can discuss your care needs, treat you or refer you to other care providers.

You may choose your own general practitioner. Here you will find a list of general practitioners in Breda. It may help to talk to your health insurer in advance. They can tell you which practitioners in Breda they have a contract with. ZorgkaartNederland can also help you make a choice. Here, others share their experiences with the healthcare. On the website of the general practice you will usually find information on how to register, if not, you can always call or email the practice.

Be careful when looking for information about health and illness on the Internet. Not all information is reliable. Thuisdok is a handy website to estimate what is wrong with you and whether it is recommended to visit a doctor.

GPinfo can help you if you: want to stay healthy; want to know what you can do about complaints yourself; want to know how you can deal with complaints; want to know who can help you; want to know whether you should go to the (general) practitioner; want to prepare yourself for a conversation with the (general) practitioner; want to reread your (general) practitioner's explanations and advice.

Do you want to contact the doctor outside office hours or in case of an emergency? Then it is better to call the general practitioners station directly. If every second counts, call the emergency number 112.
