To gain more insight in the cause of complaints, the course of a disease or the results of a treatment it may be necessary for the GP to have your blood, urine or stool examined. If this is the case you will receive an application form for testing.
To have a blood sample taken and to hand in urine or stool you can go to:
Onze Lieve Vrouwe Gasthuis (OLVG hospital): Oosterpark 9, open Monday until Friday from 07.15 until 16.00 hours
Atalmedial: corner Pontanusstraat / P. Vlamingstraat, open Monday until Friday from 08.00 until 13.30 hours.
Other locations and opening hours of Atalmedial you can find on their website.
Always bring your proof of identity and your health insurance card with you.
If the examination requires you to be sober this is stated on the application form.
A jar for handing in urine or stool you can get at our GP practice assistant or at the pharmacy or drugstore.
The examination of the blood, urine or stool is done at a laboratory.
The GP receives the result of the test.
