Deaf people can use deaf interpreters. There are rules for the number of hours and the reimbursement. For example, a deaf person will be reimbursed for 30 hours a year for a deaf interpreter in private situations, such as visits to the general practitioner, parents' evenings or a funeral. It is possible to use a sign interpreter remotely (via smartphone, tablet or computer). There are also writing interpreters for people who have suddenly become deaf; the writing interpreter types everything that is said at speech speed. In this way, the hearing impaired can follow what is being said. He then does not need to understand sign language (from 2016 https://www.tolkcontact.nl/).
