Patient associations

Disorders are of any kind or type, chronic or acute. A diagnosis can turn your world upside down and you may sometimes feel like you're on your own...

Within the hospital, you can contact your attending physician, the nurses and the patient counseling service. From our vision 'wij, gastvrij', we want to assist you and your environment as best as possible.

Need to share your story?

If you want to share your story with fellow sufferers or if you need more information about your condition and tailor-made activities, you can contact one of the many self-help groups or patient associations.

If you want to know whether your specific condition or situation has a self-help group, be sure to take a look at the Trefpunt Self-help website, because you are not alone! There you will find all patient associations and self-help groups.
