Observation during opening hours
When GP practice Dapperbuurt is closed (normally this is only in the week of Christmas or New Year's day) for urgent matters that can not wait until the practice is open again, from 08.00 until 17.00 hours you call the emergency line of the Linnaeus Medisch Centrum (GP practice) via number: 020 665 0355 (option 1).

Note: it is not the intention that you call Linnaeus Medisch Centrum during our afternoon break (from 12.00 until 14.00 hours).
Then you call for urgent matters our number 020 665 1411 and choose option 1 (for very urgent matters) or choose option 3 (after 15.00 hours if the problem cannot wait until the next working day). Please do not misuse both options.
