Less gaps in medical treatment for refugee children
Since January 2016, the Dutch Association for Paediatric Medicine has had a notification centre where paediatricians can report problems they encounter when caring for the children of refugees. Children get lost in the shuffle of the many relocations and doctors do not know how and where to find them.
The notification centre was set up to gain more insight into the gaps in medical treatment for refugee children. At the end of April 2016, 35 notifications were made by paediatricians, primarily for children who did not appear for their appointment at the hospital or who disappeared after their first visit.
