Health Ministry still vetting candidates for hospital visitors board members

ISKANDAR PUTERI: Johor health, culture and heritage committee chairman Mohd Khuzzan Abu Bakar (pic) has denied allegations that appointment for hospital visitors board members have stopped at certain hospitals in the state.

He added that such allegations were baseless as the Health Ministry, through its committee and hospital directors, was still going through the process of appointing board members for hospitals.

Mohd Khuzzan said the process was meant to identify qualified candidates that come from various backgrounds.

“At present, about 156 board members have already been appointed for 11 hospitals, where each hospital has 10 members, which is the minimum requirement to form a hospital visitors board.

“Only Kota Tinggi Hospital has nine members as one of their members resigned as the person had relocated and no longer lived in the district,” he said.

He said this in his reply to Gan Peck Chen (PH-Penggaram) during the state assembly sitting yesterday.

Gan had raised the issue why some hospitals in Johor did not have enough visitor board members as appointments had stopped.

She stressed that such appointments were important to safeguard the relationship between hospitals and the local community.
