About us

top_houtlaanOur practice is split over two separate locations in Leiden. The main surgery can be found in healthcare centre Leidse Hout, quite near to Leiden Centraal Station.  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, psychologist Anna Stam along with assistants Xandra Rotteveel  and Anne Marie . We also have doctors and assistants who are in training.

Evelyn Brakema (GP in training/aios) will be in our practice until 1 december 2022.

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 healthcare centre Leidse Hout we have a close cooperation with other medical disclines: – amongst others – psychologists, physiotherapists, dieticians, pediatricians   You can directly be seen for instance at the hospital for blood tests, x-rays, etc.

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.
