Healthcare service

  • The doctor's practices remain open for essential (emergency) care. It is not possible to come to the practice yourself, you are always requested to contact us by telephone first. People with respiratory complaints are requested not to enter the Texel Pharmacy.
  • General practices now only treat patients who do not have respiratory complaints and / or fever. They try to handle as much as possible by telephone and only when physically necessary to see patients.
  • For tourists, they contact their own doctor as much as possible in case of health complaints. Only if physical assessment is really necessary (eg suture wound or if his own GP thinks it necessary) can he / she report by telephone to one of the Texel GP practices.
  • Patients with respiratory complaints and / or fever: these patients also need to call their own GP in the first instance, only if they deem it necessary that the patient is seen, patients can be seen at a central "cough consultation hour". To do this, first contact one of the Texel GP practices.
  • The above also applies to evening / night / weekends.
  • Contact general practitioners: for urgent purposes, a random number from one of the Texel general practitioners can be dialed. For Corona-related questions, the request is to first call your own GP and the GP can then contact a Texel GP if the patient needs to be seen.


  • TESO continues to operate the sailings according to an adjusted timetable, the timetable can be found at TESO ferry service requests that vehicle occupants remain in the vehicle as much as possible. Cyclists and pedestrians are asked to spread as much as possible in the salons. Extensive hygiene measures have been taken on board. The ferry service will not go out of service.
