Maria Middelares General Hospital has always devoted considerable attention to psychological support as part of our patient care. In response to the growing demand of the last few years, the number of psychologists at our hospital has increased substantially. Our psychologists’ areas of focus are diagnostics, support and therapy for patients, and they advise other clinicians and care providers about these.
- Compassionate care
- Psychological support in a multidisciplinary setting
- Added value for our patients as well as the people around them
Our psychologists deliver their services in a multidisciplinary setting: specific partnerships with the various departments of our hospital are in place. Within this (health insurance fund) setting, the emphasis is on consultations with and diagnosis of admitted patients at the request of their attending physicians.
Additionally, time is also set aside for outpatient consultations (as part of follow-up or in response to a referral) and outpatient diagnostic tests, again at the request of the clinicians in our hospital. In this way, we try to offer added value to the treatment and support for our patients and the people around them.
