About CTP Veldzicht

At Veldzicht we do everything possible to help our patients move forward in a capable and safe manner as they try to find a suitable place for themselves within Dutch society or their country of origin.

We do this on the basis of four core values:

  • Interest
  • Equality
  • Professionalism
  • Personal approach

Our staff realise just how important the support they provide is to the success of a treatment process. They deal with patients respectfully, based on the principle that everyone is equal.
For us a professional approach means:

  • acting predictably
  • motivating and encouraging the patient
  • communicating clearly
  • positively reinforcing desirable behaviour
  • actively ignoring undesirable behaviour
  • setting an example

Our ambition is to develop into a highly regarded and highly qualified facility within the Dutch healthcare sector, specialising in transcultural psychiatry and security.The management board of CTP Veldzicht consists of Hanny van Geffen (Managing Director).

The Veldzicht Centre for Transcultural Psychiatry is part of the Custodial Institutions Agency of the Ministry of Justice and Security.

Until 1 January 2016 the Veldzicht Centre for Transcultural Psychiatry was a forensic psychiatric centre (FPC), or forensic hospital.
