It was great meeting many of you last week at the HBI conference in London. Lots of very interesting talks and discussions, and good opportunities to talk informally. A “welcome” to my new contacts who have agreed to be put on my mailing list. I hope that you find my bi-weekly updates on the Dutch healthcare sector interesting and useful. In this update we cover:
- Bad news / good news concerning hospital consolidation. What will be the next steps?
- Extra salary for elderly care staff. When will other sectors follow?
- More loss-making organizations in the disabled care sector. Will tariffs be increased?
- In a new snapshot we give an overview of Mauritskliniek, a group of specialized clinics
