Payment

You will receive an invoice from the hospital for any consultations. This will usually take one to two months after your appointment. Read more about this invoice here.

Hospitalisation

If, after the consultation and any further examinations, it appears that a hospital admission is necessary, a suitable schedule will be drawn up together with the secretarial assistant.

During your hospital stay you will be closely followed up by the ‘week doctor’, that is the neurologist on call who does the daily ward rounds. This physician is responsible for the follow-up of your medical records and for the prescription of your treatment. If necessary, this is always done in consultation with your attending physician.

The week physician can also be contacted for a conversation with a patient’s family, as long as an appointment has been made with a ward nurse or the secretariat of the Neurology Department.
