Quality, Supervision & Enforcement

The quality of healthcare is a subject of ongoing public debate.

Our team of specialised lawyers knows and understands the context in which the healthcare sector operates and has extensive experience with supervisory investigations by the authorities involved. We assist healthcare institutions in proceedings concerning imposed remedial measures, such as instructions, orders, orders for incremental penalty payments or administrative enforcement.

Our approach

Our lawyers have extensive experience in assisting healthcare institutions that are confronted with issues in the areas of quality, supervision & enforcement. Does a social worker always have to follow the professional standard or is there room for latitude? Does a healthcare institution always have to comply with requests for information from regulatory authorities such as the Health and Youth Care Inspectorate (IGJ), the Dutch Healthcare Authority (NZa), the Authority for Consumers and Markets (ACM) and the Dutch Data Protection Authority (AP)? Our lawyers will be happy to help you find practical solutions to these kinds of problems.
