Groningen practice:

After having received the referral from your General Practitioner, we will take a look at it as soon as possible after which we can make a better estimation whether we can take you into treatment and about the possible waiting time.

For problems without severe and complex characteristics the waiting list will be about 1 to 2 months and therapy can be started within a couple of weeks after the introductory meeting.

For more complex problems, the waiting time will be around 4 to 5 months.

Unfortunately, at the moment we have an intake stop for severe and complex problems because our treatment capacity is currently not sufficient for this.


Amsterdam practice:

Waiting time until the introductory meeting: For mild problems (which can be treated within the BGGZ) there is currently no waiting time. For serious and/or complex problems (which should be treated within the SGGZ) the waiting time will be around also around 1 month at the moment.

After the introduction meeting, therapy can be started immediately, depending on the complexity. We will inform you about this during the introductory meeting.

In case you have a Dutch health insurance, you can contact your insurer to request waiting period mediation. According to Dutch legislation, your insurer has to help you to find another practice where you can get an introductory meeting within 4 weeks and where you can start a therapy within 10 weeks. These are the maximum acceptable waiting periods agreed upon by healthcare providers and healthcare insurers (the so-called “Treek”-norms).
