Government hospitals with private wings offer

Filed under: Non ENT News — admin @ 1:23 pm


KUALA LUMPUR: Government hospitals with private wings have succeeded in balancing the needs of the public and giving first-class service to those who can afford it, said the president of the Malaysian Society of Otorhinolaryngologists-Head & Neck Surgeons.

Dr Kuljit Singh said the system was mutually beneficial to patients and doctors.  Practised by two teaching hospitals — University Malaya Medical Centre (UMMC) and

Hospital Universiti Kebang-saan Malaysia — the system allows for specialists to see patients after working hours for a higher fee.  This allows the doctors to earn more money and gives patients the chance to be treated by the best medical brains.

Dr Kuljit, who was with UMMC from 1998 till last year, said when the system first took off, it used to be only after working hours, in the eve-nings. But it has now been extended to the late afternoons, too…more  government-hospital-with-private-wings
