You can place a request for a buddy yourself but it can also be done via the transfer nurse or social worker of the hospital where you are treated, or via the visiting nurse or general physician.
The request can be done by phone on number 020 679 0797, ask for buddy care, or per email at
After receipt of the request, you will be contacted as soon as possible.

A buddy coordinator will visit you for an interview. In there you will be able to voice your expectations, needs and wishes with regard to buddy care. When a suitable buddy has become available, you will be introduced as soon as possible.
