We started training general practitioners from 1 March. This means that a general practitioner trainee will be working at Huisartsen Ganzenhoef for a whole year. Sander Huttenhuis started with us on 1 March (see also team).
A general practitioner trainee is a graduated doctor who often has work experience as a doctor in a hospital. Dr. van der Pas and Dr. Bom are the supervisors this year.
You can therefore also be seen by the general practitioner trainee. He does independent consultation hours, but is closely supervised by us as a supervisor. We also discuss the consultations afterwards.
During a consultation you may be asked whether the conversation may be recorded. The video recordings are only used for training purposes and are always deleted after use. Permission will always be requested before a recording is started and you always have the right to refuse.

We wish her every success in her further career. The patients who came to her are taken over by our 2 other nurse practitioners Samira and Deborah.

Project Powerful Basic Care
Since 2019, Huisartsen Ganzenhoef has started a 2-year project Powerful Basic Care. It is a test in collaboration with Zilveren Kruis and the AOF (social poor district support fund). The practice receives compensation for more time for the patient (15 minutes instead of 10 minutes) and to be able to deploy more than average staff. Close collaboration with organizations in the neighborhood that offer social support to residents in the neighborhood.
Powerful basic care is an innovative integrated approach aimed at residents with high health risks and problems in multiple areas of life.
It is a way of looking, learning and doing by all professionals in the field of care, social welfare and prevention in the neighborhood. They share knowledge and information and go in search of an integral solution to the problem with the patient.
The result? Professionals can do their job better, customers reap the benefits of tailor-made care and services and the costs of care are significantly reduced!
