Sophia Children's Hospital

Making or changing an appointment

Making an appointment by phone

You may make an appointment by phone. Please find the relevant telephone number under the outpatient clinic in question (Dutch only) or in the list at the bottom of this page.

The outpatient clinics use an options menu. Please listen to the entire menu first before making a selection. This way we can assist you as quickly and correctly as possible.

Check the waiting times (Dutch only) for outpatient clinic consultations on the Erasmus MC-Sophia Children’s Hospital waiting list.

What information do we need?

Please note that you will need a referral letter from your GP or medical specialist. Without this referral letter we cannot make an appointment for you.

Hospital care can have financial implications for you. If your health insurer does not have a contract with Erasmus MC, you may have to pay for part of the medical costs out of pocket. If your health insurer does have a contract with Erasmus MC it will depend on your health insurance policy whether all costs will be reimbursed. We therefore always recommend that you check your policy terms and conditions with your health insurer before making an appointment.

Please have the following details on hand when making or changing an appointment:

  • Your child’s date of birth.
  • Patient number (if known).
  • Name of specialization and specialist.
  • Your child’s health insurance registration number.
  • Your address details.
  • Your GP and pharmacy details.

Cancelling or changing an appointment

If you wish to cancel your appointment or change the date, please let us know timely, preferably using the online form or by email: poli.administratie.sophia@erasmusmc.nl.

Or give us a call. Clearly state the name and patient number of your child and the date and time of your appointment. Please cancel an outpatient appointment at least 24 hours in advance; otherwise we will unfortunately have to bill you for the appointment. We will send you a confirmation by letter.
