PETALING JAYA: About 150 pioneer staff of the then University Hospital (UH), who had each put in more then 25 years on the job, received a rude shock recently when they learnt they are now not entitled to free medical care at the hospital. 

Retired UH Staff Union council member and coordinator for retirement benefits K. Vellaithan said the hospital, now known as University Malaya Medical Centre (UMMC), had refused to provide medical benefits to the retired staff, comprising nurses, and para-medical, professional and administrative staff who were under the Employees Provident Fund (EPF) scheme.
