Please bring the following to your appointment at the UMC Utrecht:

  • Your appointment confirmation letter. This specifies the date and time of your appointment.
  • Your insurance pass or healthcare pass.
  • Your UMC Utrecht patient number (if you have one already).
  • Proof of identity.

Bring someone with you

Patients are often nervous when coming to the hospital. Being accompanied by someone can help. You will be given a lot of information during the consultation with the physician. Together you will remember more.

Proof of identity / BSN (citizen service) record

Anyone receiving healthcare must be able to prove their identity. You can do so using your passport, driver’s license, identity card or foreign national’s identity card. We will keep a record of your BSN (citizen service number) and other details in the hospital’s administration. Recording such details is a one-time process. However, we could ask you to prove your identity again on subsequent visits.
