Your first appointment

On your first visit as a patient at Bronovo Hospital, first go to the registration desk in the lobby. We arrange your registration and you will receive a Hospital ID pass with your information. The registration desk is open on weekdays from 7.30 to 16.30 hours and on even weeks on Tuesday from 17.15 to 21.00 hours.

Take this with you to the registration desk:

  • A valid certificate of registration from your health insurer.
  • Your identity. That can be a passport, driving license, identity card or residence permit.
  • If you have moved, the details of your new doctor and / or new address.

Your first appointment with a specialist: referral letter

When you make your first appointment with one of the specialists in Bronovo you need a referral letter from your:

  • GP (family docter)
  • consultant
  • or another referrer

You should ask for a letter of referral and make an appointent with a specialist in Bronovo within a year. N.B. A letter of referral is only valid for a year.

Making an appointment in Bronovo without a letter of referral

If you make an appointment with one of Bronovo's specialists without a letter of referral, you run the risk that your health insurer will not reimburse the costs of your treatment. In that case you have to pay the bill yourself and you will receive an invoice from Bronovo or your health care provider.

Registration of children

Children also must register as a patient in the hospital. For this you need:

  • The own passport or identity of your child (over 14 years)
  • A valid registration certificate for your child at a health care. Then state the citizen service number (BSN) of your child.

MRSA contamination

Contamination with MRSA can present a risk to you and your fellow patients when undergoing medical treatment. Therefore, before going to the hospital you must inform your primary care physician or Outpatient Clinic if you:

  • were admitted to and/or treated at a foreign health care facility in the past two months;
  • were admitted to and/or treated at a Dutch health care facility where MRSA was prevalent in the past two months;
  • are in close contact with live pigs or veal calves due to your job (e.g., pig and calf farmers, veterinarians, slaughterhouse employees);
  • live on a farm with pigs;
  • were ever infected with MRSA in the past.
