Run-down health clinics in Kelantan to be fixed

KOTA BARU: A total of 38 dilapidated health clinics in Kelantan will be renovated and upgraded this year, with the Health Ministry allocating RM9.3mil for it.

Deputy Health Minister Lukanisman Awang Sauni said the allocation was approved by the government under Budget 2023 to reduce overcrowding in hospitals.

“Renovations of these run-down clinics can improve services at the primary healthcare level, thus reducing congestion in hospitals because early and light treatment can be done at health clinics first.“This allocation shows the government’s concern in improving the quality of health services and the welfare of the people in this state,” he told reporters after the Hospital Tanah Merah Extension Construction Project handover ceremony here yesterday, reported Bernama.

The construction of Hospital Tanah Merah’s additional building costing RM153.2mil will begin on May 1 in phases, and benefit over 400,000 residents in the surrounding area.

Lukanisman said he was informed by the Public Works Department that there are four more health facility projects in Kelantan to be completed in April this year.
