Health inspectors halted 33 doctors and healthcare groups in 2013

This is more than double the 2012 total, the AD says. The paper bases its claims on an interview with the chief health inspector Ronnie van Diemen.

‘We now look at healthcare providers where the risks are high and we are quicker to intervene,’ he told the paper.
