About us

top_houtlaanOur practice is split over two separate locations in Leiden. The main surgery can be found in the grounds of the Diaconessenhuis hospital, quite near to Leiden Centraal Station. We also have another site above the Centraal Apotheek (pharmacy) on Leiden’s Breestraat. Along with our close relationship with the main Leiden hospitals, you can be assured of a speedy service and within the city, a location close to where you are.

Our team consists of Dr Hugo Boender, practice nurse Minke van Hulst along with assistants Bea Faber and Esther Kraan. We also have doctors and assistants who are in training.

Dr Hugo Boender has been in a wide range of general practice for many years. He also trained in sexual health at the RHINO in Amsterdam.

Because of our location in the grounds of the Diaconessenhuis Leiden we have a close cooperation with the hospital. You can directly be seen for instance at the hospital for blood tests, x-rays and appointments with physiotherapists, dieticians and psychologists.

Our goal is to implement a patient-centred practice. Initiatives such as good accessibility, our two locations and an evening consultations are examples of your doctor keeping himself close and easily accessible. We are constantly improving our practice – we are NHG accredited which means that there is very critical look at the way the practice is conducted and strict quality requirements. Every year this quality is retested. Also our training programme must meet academic requirements and challenges us to continual improvement.
