Huisarts RTN Oud is tevens opleider, verbonden aan de Universiteit van Amsterdam. In de praktijk wordt elk jaar een arts in het laatste, derde jaar van zijn/haar huisartsspecialisatie opgeleid.

Omdat er in feite twee artsen zorg dragen waar normaal gesproken één arts voor zorg draagt, is er in onze praktijk relatief veel tijd voor de patiënt.

Psychological care
Family care
Elderly care
HIV care

Psychological care

A lot of our patients have indicated that they are very satisfied with our psychological care. Paired with our special interest in the field and extensive knowledge based on multiple courses and trainings we can say that we are confident in the psychological care that we offer to our patients.

Family care

The practice has a lot of family care experience, especially when it comes to families in the big city. Families in big cities experience more stress, there are more parenting problems, more divorces and a lot more single parent families – when compared to families living in the countryside. Throughout the years we have become experts for these specific challenges and problems.

Elderly care

Elderly care is often complicated in the big city. We have a lot of experience in elderly care (nursing home care, dementia care). To us the complexity of elderly care is a challenge. Prevention is better than cure, especially when it comes to caring for the elderly.


We have extensive experience when it comes to STIs and sexual complaints. General practitioner Oud has worked for many years at a STI polyclinic; he attends courses on the subject and tutors other doctors on STIs as well. Talking about sex isn’t a problem in our practice; to us it’s a normal thing! Prevention is better than cure!

HIV care

Our practice has a long tradition in caring for people with HIV. We have built a lot of knowledge in caring for people with HIV and we are extending that care at the moment. HIV care equals chronic care and the general practitioner is a specialist in this field. That is why we started a project to optimise HIV care in STI polyclinics and GP practices specialised in HIV care. We can do a lot of check ups in our practise, which means less hospital visits for people with a stabile chronic HIV infection. This takes away the stigma and increases the personal contact with your general practitioner.


There are a lot of students living in the neighbourhood with specific issues like study related stress, relationship problems and STIs. The general practitioners in the practice have a lot of experience with these problems.

Only with an appointment.

You can call the practice during opening hours via telephone number 020-6642197 to make an appointment. Our practice doesn’t work with walk-ins. By using appointments for the consultation hour we prevent long waiting times.

Please keep in mind that the assistant will ask you a few questions concerning your problem when making an appointment. This is necessary for the planning of our practice and it is important information for the GP as well.

Our assistants are able to determine the urgency of your request based on their expertise, education and instructions of the GP.

Requesting a home visit

Home visits are only intended for seriously ill patients who are physically unable to attend the regular consultation hour.

You can only request a home visit between 08:30 and 12:00 (except in emergencies).


You can only request repeat prescriptions when the medication has been prescribed before by our practice and therefore is known to us.

Telephone request

You can also make a request 24 hours a day by calling 020-6642197 and leaving a voice message.

When you order before 12:00 in the afternoon your request will be mailed to the pharmacy the next business day. This means it could take up to 1 or 2 business days before your request can be processed, depending on the pharmacy.

Please be aware: for other or new medication (for example recently prescribed by the specialist) you will need to contact the practice directly.

Travel advise

General practitioner Oud is a LCR certified GP specialised in travel medicine. He can personally advise you in detail on required vaccinations, other necessities (for example malaria medication) and health risks that could occur while travelling.

If you are planning to travel it is wise – and sometimes required – to inform yourself and get the right vaccinations. We can help you with this in our practice, so you won’t need to make a visit to the GGD.

We administer all required vaccinations in our practice – we have most of these in stock. Please be aware that you sometimes need to pay for this in cash during your visit. Our pricing is competitive! Do not forget to bring your vaccination booklet. It is also possible to get one at the practice.

Please make an appointment with the assistant if you want travel advise from GP Oud. Please make sure to explicitly mention to the assistant that you would like travel advise from the doctor.

If you want to make sure to get a vaccination during the consult, you should fill in this form. We will contact you after receiving the form to schedule an appointment.

Nurse practitioner

The practice has a nurse practitioner that systematically checks diabetes and lung patients on Wednesdays.

Research shows that this greatly improves the quality of life of these patient groups.

You can make an appointment for your check ups with our assistant.

You can reach the nurse practitioner on Wednesdays between 13:00 and 13:30.
