We can help you with:
- Waitinglist mediation
- Finding the correct treatment and health care provider
Has your general practitioner (GP) referred you to a specialist for a consultation, examination or a second opinion? The members of the geZZondteam can help you find somewhere, in your region, where you can be seen faster. Even if you have already made an out-patient appointment or if are already booked in for surgery and are on a waiting list, our geZZondteam is able to actively mediate on your behalf and may be able to help you get an appointment faster.
Quality is our priority
Our geZZondteam can mediate for you if you feel that you have to wait too long for treatment. If you call our team or request waiting list mediation (wachtlijstbemiddeling) online, we will look for a treatment plan with another health care provider that offers the same, or better, healthcare service. That might not always be the fastest option as we also take quality into account when making our proposal.
4 steps to request for treatment
- Upon receiving your request for waiting list mediation, we will search for a specialist or (health care) institution where your appointment can be made quickly.
- We will then present you with several options.
- You will decide, if necessary after taking some time to think and discuss with your family, whether you agree with our proposal and which treatment option is best for you.
- We will provide you with all the necessary documentation and information to enable you to make the follow on appointments yourself.
