General practitioners out-of-hours service centre Afdrukken

General information

The “Huisartsenwachtpost” is a general practitioners out-of-hours service centre which was designed for patients with pressing medical problems when your own general practitioner is absent due to national holidays or weekend hours.

It is always in your best interest if you come to our centre rather than asking for a doctor to come to your home. At the centre the physician can examine and help you in better circumstances. There is always a doctor present. By coming to the practive you avoid a long waiting period.

If for some reason you may not be able to come to the practice due to medical reasons you can always request a house visit.

The general practitioners out-of-hours service centre works closely together with the emergency services in Antwerp and all hospitals, therefore additional specialists may further assist you.

Depending on the nature and seriousness of the complaint, the centre will provide in:

  • information and medical advice
  • an examination (incl. blood tests, urine tests, etc.)
  • a house visit when a patient is not able to come to the centre

Your own general practitioner will always receive a report mentioning which examination was done and which medication was prescribed.
