GGDs have “a serious scarcity” of medical personnel, writes the Well being and Youth Care Inspectorate. “The sustainability of high-quality, secure and accessible public well being care is underneath nice strain.”
Final winter, the Inspectorate performed an investigation at 24 GGDs and the umbrella group GGD GHOR Nederland. For years, the well being companies have been unable to search out sufficient new docs and nurses. Based on the Inspectorate, this primarily has penalties for youth healthcare, the battle towards infectious ailments and forensic drugs. The latter consists of, for instance, an investigation into the reason for loss of life if somebody might not have died of pure causes.
The Inspectorate states that medical coaching ought to pay extra consideration to the GGD as an employer. The GGDs themselves may put money into being a sexy employer, “by not competing with one another and by providing engaging employment situations”.
