Govt urged to ensure ample stock of medicines in Sabah hospitals


KOTA KINABALU: The Health Ministry must ensure hospitals in Sabah have a sufficient stock of medicines throughout the year, said Tawau MP Datuk Christina Liew.

She said that she had been receiving complaints from patients who told her that certain medications were frequently out of stock at hospitals in the state.

Liew said that long-term medications for heart ailments were among those found to be out of stock at the hospitals' pharmacy since early this year.

"Patients told me that they were given medications for only two weeks, instead of the usual one-month supply, with pharmacists explaining that they did not have stock of the medicine," said the Api-Api assemblyman in a statement on Wednesday (Jan 19).
