The Netherlands Cancer Institute provides up-to-date information about the current wait times for your first appointment and your first treatment.
Wait time for your first visit to the clinic
Your first visit may be a regular consultation, a second opinion, or rapid diagnostics appointment
The wait time for your first appointment will be calculated from the moment of planning until the appointment itself. Before planning your appointment or second opinion, our physicians will need 5 weekdays on average to consult your medical history and request additional data from your previous hospital.
