Welcome to Praktijk Lastage. Praktijk Lastage is a private mental healthcare practise located in the Lastage neighbourhood in the old city centre of Amsterdam. The practise offers healthcare services, in Dutch but also in English, to patients who are referred to the "gespecialiseerde geestelijke gezondheidszorg" (specialised mental healthcare) or want to consult a psyciatrist privately. You can contact us about treatment options and waiting times if you have received a referral letter by your GP. The information on this website assumes that you are enrolled in the Dutch healthcare system, although it is not strictly required. In case you pay for your treatment yourself, it is possible to consult the psychiatrist without a referral letter.
