Hulu Langat health clinics to be upgraded


Jamaliah: Upgrades have been carried out at health and dental clinics in Hulu Langat.

Public health clinics at the 9th and 14th mile in Hulu Langat, Selangor, will be rebuilt with Tier Two facilities to enable them to serve up to 800 patients daily, said Selangor public health and environment committee chairman Jamaliah Jamaluddin.

She said this in response to a question from Datuk Johan Abd Aziz (BN-Dusun Tua) on action to be taken by the state government to upgrade its health facilities.

He had pointed out that the buildings were old and struggling to cater to the growing number of patients.

Jamaliah said a total of RM500,000 had been allocated for repair and maintenance work in the medium term.

“For example, RM290,030 has been spent on structural upgrades at the Hulu Langat Batu 14 Health Clinic.

“The work involved rewiring and also building a new ceiling to solve the leaks.

“The aim was to ensure the comfort of patients and health personnel.

“Upgrades were also carried out at the dental clinics at Hulu Langat at a cost of RM149,824.”

She added that the dental clinics at the 9th and 14th mile offered services such as root canals, fillings, extraction, scaling, treatment and diagnosis.

Jamaliah said that every Thursday, the Batu 14 dental clinic personnel would visit expectant mothers and children.

Under the new rebuilding plans, both the 9th and 14th mile dental clinics would have eight new dental chairs, five to cater to regular cases and three that would fall under specialist treatment.

To a supplementary question from Johan on whether the state government had plans to upgrade the hospital in Kajang, where the lack of bed space had become a common complaint, Jamaliah said the state government would have to take a more detailed look at the problem before coming to a decision.
