Before my GP training, I worked a few years in the hospital as a doctor on an emergency care department and I worked as a doctor at department of geriatrics. Special interests: elderly care and migrant care.

In addition to my studies, I have always had a special interest for topics concerning internationalisation and intercultural differences in care. I’ve learned a lot during exchanges with family doctors from all over te world and by attending international congresses (RCGP, WONCA). Last year I worked as a volunteer in a refugee camp on Lesbos.

Marion Borghart

Marion Borghart

Mental Health nurse

Dear people,

Please let me introduce myself. My name is  Marion Borghart. Beginning August I will start as POH-GGZ ( practice supporter mental health care) at the general practice Waalfront in  Nijmegen. Every Friday morning of the even weeks I will be present. I look forward to being part of this team.

After obtaining my bachelor’s degree in nursing, I worked among others in a psychiatric hospital in Nijmegen, in addiction care and for the last few years with enthusiasm and satisfaction as a practice nurse in an asylum seekers centre where the psychological problems were very diverse and complex with people suffering from different syndromes such as somatic, psychic and psychosocial.

Last year I decided to take up a new challenge and did the POH GGZ training. During this training I very much enjoyed working as a POH GGZ in a general practice in Nijmegen. For some months now I have worked in a general practice in Beuningen and in Reek.

To me being approachable, respect and commitment are important basic values.

I am married and since four years we have lived in the countryside near Winssen. After living for many years in Nijmegen this is a great place to come home to.

In my spare time I like to walk our dog. I also find it very relaxing to work in the garden, do the odd job around the house and look after our chickens. Furthermore I like to cook and eat a fine meal.

I look forward to meeting you all and hope to give you the proper guidance and support whenever needed.

Co-operation

We are closely working together with other health professionals within our practice. We will introduce them shortly below.
