Need a doctor?
Use the Medicoo app
Due to the big crowds in the summer season, healthcare in West Zeeuws-Vlaanderen has changed. To avoid the overload, the general practitioner (GP) in West Zeeuws-Vlaanderen extended their service with an app. We ask you to use the app Medicoo to chat with nurses about your healthcare problem. The nurses will tell you what you can do best. When necessary, they can schedule an appointment for you with one of our online and offline GPs. Be aware that the default language in de app is Dutch. Costs for this health service will be charged during the consultation.
We recommend that you consult your own GP first. He knows your health situation and may help you the best.
Thank you for your cooperation. Have a nice holiday!
In life-threatening situations, call 112.
