Monitor the quality of doctors
"Malaysia has 39,000 practising doctors. From 2013 to 2020, the Government will appoint 4000 to 6000 new medical officers every year, " the Health Ministry says in Parliament.
Malaysians want good medical service. Some doctors give better service than the others. Patients stand in long queues at government clinics and see the attitude of some staff members; they feel anguished.
The Government sets up over 200 1 Malaysia clinics. But, the people worry about the quality of doctors and the standard of service.
The Medical Act 1971 enables the Ministry to monitor these aspects. We need effective monitoring.
