Public hospitals need attention


I REFER to the letter “Need for healthcare reforms” (The Star, July 24).

The Health Ministry is urged to provide healthcare service to all, regardless of nationality. The issue of migrant workers is not the responsibility of the Ministry. The failure of the Immigration Department and other related government bodies has resulted in the sorry state we have today so why should the burden be put on the Ministry? It is very unfair to pressure doctors to withhold healthcare from those who deserve it to “save the country’s money”.
