” In connection with the Corona-virus outbreak, Buurtzorg in the Netherlands has taken precautions.
These measures are fully aligned to the guidelines of the Dutch Government and can be updated daily.
Currently the following decisions apply to our international work:
We are in contact with our international partners to share knowledge and to support each other where possible.
We realize that there are major concerns around the world, especially for our vulnerable people, but also for our health staff who are being appealed to at the moment.
We wish everyone a lot of strength in these difficult times.”
Buurtzorg continues to influence and lead innovation across the care system in the Netherlands and internationally. Since the first team was created in 2006 Buurtzorg Netherlands has grown rapidly to 950 teams and 15.000 nurses. At home and across the world Buurtzorg is supporting providers to transition to its model of care.
In 2016 Buurtzorg transformed two competing Dutch care companies. Both are now enjoying similar gains in productivity and staff and client satisfaction.
Building on this success Buurtzorg has developed and applied its innovative approaches to Children and Families, Mental health, Domestic support and more.
Collaboration is key to Buurtzorg’s model of care and and its operating model; this has seen the organisation collaborate in new areas such as Mental Health and Children & Families.
It has inspired other care organisations and Buurtzorg has collaborated with these organisations too; increasingly the interest is international and Buurtzorg has established an international team to lead on collaborations all around the world.
