Emergency help in case of accidents can be supplied by every hospital. Assistance is available 24 hours a day. For other matters, you cannot go to the hospital on your own initiative. If treatment in a hospital is necessary, a doctor will refer you. If you should have a medical emergency of the type that requires first aid, you can go straight to the EHBO (First Aid) for assistance. In the case of other types of emergencies, you can dial 112.

An apotheek (pharmacy / chemist) dispenses drugs on prescription from your family doctor or dentist, while drogists (drugstores) are limited to a wide range of over-the-counter, non-prescription medicines. Most pharmacies are open Monday to Friday from 9:30am to 5:30pm, with at least one pharmacy on-call in each neighbourhood at weekends and at night.

The Dutch word for family doctor or GP is huisarts - which literally translates into 'house doctor'. The general word for doctor is dokter or arts.
