Emergency call KWF & Taskforce Oncology: support healthcare!

Utrecht

KWF Kankerbestrijding and members of the Taskforce Oncology urge all Dutch people to adhere to the corona measures and to be optimally vaccinated (if possible). Support all healthcare professionals who want to continue to provide care for all people who are sick. Their commitment is great and we are very grateful to them for that. By sticking to the measures, we can help keep care accessible to everyone.

The need is high, because the Netherlands is close to the point that due to the significant increase in corona patients in hospitals and UMCs, other life-saving care is scaling down to an unacceptable level.

Johan van de Gronden, director of the KWF: ‘Due to the enormous pressure on healthcare to nurse large numbers of corona patients again, the treatment of other life-threatening diseases, including cancer, is at risk. Refraining from taking preventive measures at this stage has major social consequences and ultimately costs human lives. If this crisis calls for one thing, it’s solidarity.’
