BALIK PULAU: There has been a misunderstanding over the issue of the pass requirement for SPM-level Bahasa Melayu (BM) for recruiting Grade UD41 medical officers, said Deputy Health Minister Datuk Seri Dr Hilmi Yahaya.

He said the decision was an ini­tiative by the Health Ministry to up­­hold the national language, as the previous condition set by the Public Service Department (PSD) since 2003 did not require a pass in BM for the appointment of per­­manent medical officers in the civil service.
