Healthcare debate 03/03

The healthcare debate is an interactive session in which different companies will debate with each other. The demand for healthcare will increase more and more in the coming years, the labor market is tight, the workload is high and healthcare is in danger of becoming unaffordable. Healthcare is about to make a real change of era and the availability of sufficient staff plays a central role in this. This is reflected in all areas of healthcare, availability of staff is the topic of the moment, now, and in the coming years. During the healthcare debate, the company representatives Marcel de Jong of Hello!Planner, Gerwin Holland of Saamborgh and Teun Oosterbaan of The Beagle Armada will discuss this with each other. Rob Boelens will lead the debate. During the debate, there will also be room for students to ask questions and share their views.
