Assessments for the Special Medical Procedures Act remain made-to-measure decisions

Deciding whether or not to impose or remove a requirement for a permit for a special medical procedure always needs to be tailored to the situation. In the recommendations given today to the Minister for Medical Care and Sport, the Health Council of the Netherlands has provided guidance that should allow decisions to be made more clearly and unambiguously. To that end, the Council has drawn up an assessment framework and made recommendations about how it should be applied.
