Have you made an appointment you are unable to make? Make sure you inform us by telephone no later than 24 hours before your appointment. You can contact the Appointment Office 088 979 79 00. This is possible on workdays, during office hours, from 08.00 – 17.00 hours. Your appointment can subsequently be cancelled or moved to an alternative date and time free of charge. However, you will be charged a fee if you do not cancel your appointment on time. HMC patients who have not cancelled an appointment, or who have cancelled too late, will receive an invoice for €45,-. This amount does not cover the costs incurred, but does make sure patients become more aware of the appointments they have made.

Have you visited a foreign hospital?

These are so-called hospital bacteria which are insensitive to antibiotics. Please let us know as soon as possible, allowing us to take the appropriate measures. More information: Patient Safety
