Paragraph mentioning APHM:

Meanwhile, Association of Private Hospitals Malaysia (APHM) hoped the government would set up special budget for the treatment of its patients in private hospitals.

Its president Datuk Dr Kuljit Singh said this would cut the waiting time for patients while helping private hospitals that were also facing losses get back on their feet.

“This will cut the long waiting time for patients to get treatment while slashing queues for (medical) imaging, physiotherapy and selected surgeries.”

“This will also help some of the private hospitals who are now experiencing fewer medical tourists and a decrease in the utilisation of their facilities.”

He said that private hospitals were happy to discuss the cost aspects with the government.

“We are looking at a win-win situation and the patients will gain at the end of the day by getting their treatment early without paying a single sen.”

Earlier, Kuljit pitched the idea to Finance Minister Tengku Datuk Seri Zafrul Abdul Aziz in a meeting via Zoom.
