Video calling as an extra tool for triage

If you call us, we will ask a number of questions to find out how urgent your complaint is. We call this triage. In some cases, such as with external injuries, it can be useful if the triagist has a picture of the injury or of the situation you are in. That is why it has recently become possible to have video contact during the telephone conversation. This requires a smartphone or tablet with camera function. The image connection between you and the triagist is then easily established. If necessary, the triagist can ask the doctor on duty to watch. The use of video calling provides additional possibilities to provide you with good treatment advice and it can prevent a visit to the general practitioner.

A remote consultation will be charged for video calling. Rates: https://hapmaastricht.nl/en/rates
