To treat his own cancer, the main character, Maarten Keyser, develops a revolutionary light therapy. He is a doctor and understands that patients like himself can only survive if he builds a service based on an enlightened idea: charging a reasonable price for a valuable service. He achieves this by using chlorophyll, a natural plant-based ingredient that is extremely powerful , and but cannot be patented. His focus on results not profit is revolutionary. However, the grey eminences of Dutch healthcare care only for statistics and their pensions. The opposition to Maarten’s innovation by this critical part of government is depicted in this book. Their self-interest, schemes and machinations are laid bare. Wim Huppes’ new novel The Dutch Institute is a fascinating story of what is probably the appalling truth behind healthcare administration today.
