NST Leader: Cry, my beloved doctors
16 days ago
DOCTORS are letting out a loud cry before leaving our shores for better treatment, but those who matter deflect it by saying brain drain happens everywhere. This is a recipe for turning issues into crises. We thought we elected politicians to solve problems.
Did we think right? We think so. Granted, the issue of migrating doctors isn't just the Health Ministry's responsibility. Several others are involved, including the Public Service Department.
Malaysia is not good at solving problems that spread across ministries. We shine when it comes to managing silos. Perhaps it's a question of turfs. Be that as it may, a way must be found before we are left without doctors. Exaggeration? Admittedly, it is, but exaggeration brings problems into focus.
