Preparing for your appointment

Do you have an appointment planned at Diakonessenhuis? On this page, we tell you how to prepare for your visit.

Is this your first visit to our hospital?

First you have to register as a patient. Please go to the Patiëntinschrijving (Patient Registration) desk before your appointment at the outpatient clinic.

The Patient Registration desk is open from Monday to Friday, from 7:50 to 17:00.

The receptionist at the Patiëntinschrijving desk will create a patient file for you. This file contains your personal information and information about your insurance. We will also take a photo of you and add it to your file.

What you should bring to your appointment

  • list of the medicines (in Dutch) that you use.
  • Valid ID.
  • Information about your insurance.
  • A referral letter from your GP (if you have one).
  • Sometimes you will get a questionnaire when you make your appointment. If you receive a questionnaire, fill it in and take it with you to your appointment.

Valid ID

You must always have valid ID with you when you visit our hospital. This rule also applies to children below the age of 14.
