Important patient information

Fewer appointments at UMC Utrecht

Because we also hospitalize patients with the coronavirus, unfortunately not all planned appointments and treatments can continue as usual. However, we continue to provide all urgent care and treatments that cannot be postponed.

If you have an appointment in the coming period that has been canceled, we will contact you. Your appointment may then be replaced by a telephone consultation or an e-consultation. Your treating physician will determine what is appropriate for your situation. It may also be the case that it is important that the doctor sees you. In that case, you can simply visit the UMC Utrecht. If applicable, please indicate if you have flu-like or cold symptoms. In that case we will ask you to attend the specially equipped cohort outpatient clinic.

We also request you to bring a maximum of 1 escort to the hospital (who has no flu-like symptoms, such as coughing or fever).
