Duration: January 2016 - December 2016

In 2014 and 2015 the healthcare system in the Netherlands has been majorly reformed. Consequently, we expect an increasing demand of acute primary care in out-of-hours (OOH).
To what extent has the demand of primary out-of-hours care changed during the years 2015-2015, with respect to health problems and urgency of these health problems?
Data are derived from routine electronic health records form patients that attended primary care cooperatives participating in the NIVEL Primary Care Database.
