Doctors should know about the Private Healthcare Facilities & Services (PHFS) Act 1988
Most of us doctors are too busy to bother about changes in policy or voice their opinions. We work hard, have little spare time for our families. Yet all of us should know of the PHFS because it effects all of us.
You can find out the latest news of the PHFS at the Malaysian Medical Resources and take part in the forum discussions. You can also read more info about the PHFS at the Doktorswastabersatu blog.
I think it is a good thing to have an acceptable level of quality in private clinics. However as usual we are shown the stick instead of carrots. Not enough doctors in the government? Just force doctors to have longer compulsory services. Too many doctos leaving for the private sector? Lets regulate the private sector further and make it hard to set up new practices. Sad.
