Dictionary of Dutchness


The Nederlandse Zorgautoriteit, launched in October 2006, is the official supervisor of the Dutch health service. Hospitals, doctors, health insurers and long-term care homes all fall under its watchful eye. According to the organisation’s website, the accent is on making sure the consumer – read patient – gets what he or she paid for in terms of price, efficiency and quality.
