Reporting incidents in relation to transmural care

Things can sometimes go wrong in the chain of communications between different healthcare-providers. For example, the information required for the transfer of a patient may be incomplete or inaccurate. And there are plenty of other things that may go wrong in transmural care. This is a matter of concern to us, as our aim is to ensure that our patients can rest assured that, when they leave the Erasmus MC for further treatment in a different setting, they continue to receive the same standard of care. And vice versa.

Our partners in the transmural chain, as well as GPs and medical specialists from other hospitals, can report any problems, complaints and incidents to our External Care Relations Department. Please send an email to and a member of the department will then get in touch with you. Please describe the nature of the problem, complaint or incident in the email and don’t forget to include your own contact details. Please do not include any patient data.
