Govt to address Sarawak critical skill shortages in medical and nursing

Assistant Public Health Minister Datuk Dr Jerip Susil said  the shortage of doctors and nurses is already being felt in the  recent years and efforts must be made to address the  problem.
“The shortage of the medical personnel cannot be filled  overnight. But, we are looking0 at alternatives that could  help us up, such as encouraging the local institutions of  higher learning to work closely with the private sectors,” said  Jerip after witness the signing ceremony of
Memorandum of  Understanding (MoU) between University Malaysia Sarawak  (UNIMAS) and Timberland Medical Centre at UNIMAS here  today.
Jerip said working with the private sector able to enhance  the capacity building amongst the medical personnel and  therefore the collaboration is indeed opportune and timely.
He said the collaboration also comes at an important  juncture for Sarawak to continue the journey to transform  the medical sector, narrow down the gap between the private  and public medical industry by end of this decade.
“Critical to our success will be the availability of qualified  medical personnel to meet the growing and diverse needs of  our community, in tandem with the effort to steer the medical  sector into health tourism, a growing niche in the service  industry,” he said.
“Besides, we need more doctors and nurses in the public  hospital and to provide excellent services equal to the private  hospital,” he said.
The MoU allow both parties to achieve the common goal of  providing excellent training experiences and increase the  number of clinical specialists.
