Exploring a centralisation scenario for forensic clinical research and forensic post-mortems

(full text only available in Dutch)

Summary

The main question concerns the feasibility of a centralised organisation model to guarantee high quality and sustainable forensic clinical research and post-mortems in the Netherlands. As medical care for detainees can be organised in other models, this forensic-medical service is excluded from this study.

Currently 22 municipal health service centres and four private companies provide forensic-medical services based in 26 locations dispersed over the country. They employ 242 forensic doctors who are called by the police to execute forensic clinical research and forensic post-mortems.
