Specialist care at Polikliniek Prins Willem
Our specialists are available to all residents in The Hague and its surrounding areas and work together at the "Polikliniek Prins Willem"
We encourage you to visit our Centre and to make appointments by calling (070) 306 5111. For non-Dutch insured patients no referral letter is required. If you have Dutch Insurance, however, your GP should provide us with a referral letter for reimbursement purposes.
We offer an "open-door" policy at our clinic. This means that you may directly make appointments, without the need to be registered with our General Practitioners, however priority is given to IHCH patients. Waiting times are usually less than a week.
Frequently asked questions
Yes, you can, and even if you are not registered with a GP in our clinic. Registered clients have priority access though. If you are registered with a GP at our centre, please consult your GP first when you want to see a specialist. This will reduce your waiting time and -because our GP's and specialists work closely together- ensures a good medical treatment. If you do not have a GP at all in the Netherlands, we will ask you to register with one of our GP's at the IHCH so as to secure follow-up of possible specialist treatments.
At present we offer cardiology, dermatology, gynaecology, internal medicine, neurology, ophthalmology, urology, and paediatrics. Appointments can be booked via our reception, (0)70 30 65 111.
The tariffs for specialist services are regulated by the Dutch Ministry of Health and may be very different from those in your home country.
Prices are set using a DBC (diagnosis-treatment-combination). For every diagnosis there is a different DBC, to which a package price is attached. Certain diagnoses may require more visits to the specialist, all these visits are then included in the price. This price is based on an average treatment for the diagnosis the specialist has made. Depending on the actual situation, the bill may seem either expensive or inexpensive to you. At the end of the DBC (when the specialist closes your 'case'), an invoice will be generated. We refer you to our billing and insurance information for the Polikliniek Prins Willem (PPW).
