How does a telephone call with 1733 go?
The operator may advise you to come to the out-of-hours service.
When their triage shows that you can come to the out-of-hours medical center, a team of several doctors is here to help you quickly. As a patient, it is in your best interest to come to the medical center yourself because waiting times for home visits can be very long. A report of each consultation is sent to your GP.
In exceptional cases, the operator can send a doctor on-call to your house.
Home visits will be done in case of a medical urgency, for which 6 exceptions were provided for in the medical protocols (palliative patients, residential care centers, ...). A report will be made of every doctor's visit and will be sent to your personal GP.
The operator can send an ambulance.
If the situation appears to be serious or the doctor on-call cannot get to you in time, the operator will send an ambulance.
The operator may propose to wait until your personal doctor is available for consultation.
During the week you can visit your own doctor during the day. If your symptoms worsen, please call back to 1733.
