Minister to consider burka ban in health sector
THE NETHERLANDS - Dutch Health Minister Ab Klink is going to investigate whether it would be desirable to introduce a so-called "burka ban" in the health sector, prompted by a proposal by the Christian Democrat party.
The health minister said that while no major problems occur in practice, he could imagine that if a person has their face covered it may be detrimental to the relationship between patient and doctor or nurse.
