Hospital asks patients for donation

Patients using the Erasmus medical centre are being asked to make a donation of €35 a year which will be used to attract new talent, improve services and for medical research.

The hospital said the request for donations fits in with government policy to make hospitals find more of their own financing for scientific research.
