International Medical Centre - Centre Médical Francophone

You have recently been a patient at the general practise of doctor Eekhof. To his great regret he had to terminate his work as a general practitioner with immediate effect due to health reasons.

All patients of doctor Eekhof have received a letter about this in the beginning of April. To guarantee the continuation of the care for his patients, Arts en Zorg will continue the care for his patients as per his request.

In a second letter that all former patients of doctor Eekhof have received on April 26th, we have informed them about how this continuation of care is organized. We have included the most important information of this letter below:

Medical declarations

In the Netherlands it is stated in the laws and regulations that a consulting physician is not allowed to issue medical declarations on behalf of his or her patients to e.g. employers (for more detailed information check below). Arts en Zorg follows this policy. If requested we can print an extract of your medical file as proof of your contact with your GP. Arts en Zorg actively communicates this policy to all international organizations in this region.

Position KNMG on medical declarations

We have to follow the Dutch laws and regulations and follow the guidelines that the Royal Dutch Medical Association (KNMG, the professional organization for physicians) has drawn up on this topic. You can find a more detailed explanation of their viewpoint in their document to explain why consulting physicians refuse to issue ‘medical declarations’ (also to be found on their website).
