Expertise centre and treatment centre

Expertise centre and treatment centre

An expertise centre is a hospital where the healthcare providers have a lot of knowledge about a (rare) disease. The various care providers involved in the examinations and treatments, work together in a team.
You don’t always have to go to the expertise centre for all treatments and advice. You could just go once a year for check-ups. The care providers in the expertise centre can pass on their advice to your own healthcare provide in a treatment centre near you. The rest of the healthcare needed, can be provided by the care providers in your area.
