Structure of governance in a far-reaching cooperation or merger process

An important lesson that can be drawn from the decision is that if (health care) institutions decide to enter into a far-reaching cooperation and/or merger, the governance should be organised in such a way that each individual management and supervisory body is (and remains) capable of taking independent decisions throughout the entire (merger) process. In addition, it follows from the decision that it is possible to request the appointment of specifically nominated officers as directors or supervisors (for the duration of the investigation).
