Here in the Netherlands we are now in a “lock-down” similar to the one we had before the summer. Not as strict as in many other countries, but restaurants and cafes are closed and there are restrictions on the size of groups for events. Hospitals are starting to fill up again, so, hopefully, the restrictions will help. Even with corona dominating the headlines there is still other news regarding the Dutch healthcare sector. For this update we cover:
- Investors found for Sanquin Plasma Products. How will the governance work?
- Insurance companies suggest steps to build 25.000 nursing home beds by 2025. Good news for the sector?
- Large traditional healthcare organization to be split up. Who will be next?
- Insurance companies will continue to support healthcare sector in 2021. Who else will step up?
