IPOH: Overcrowded with patients waiting for treatment, limited waiting room and insufficient parking.
Such is the current situation of the Tanjung Rambutan Clinic in the Tambun Parliamentary constituency and the area is also facing traffic congestion on the main route in front of the clinic building due to its unsuitable location.
The problem is one of the local issues in the Hulu Kinta State Legislative Assembly (DUN) area that has already been resolved by the Barisan Nasional (BN) candidate in the 15th General Election (GE15) for the DUN seat, Datuk Mazlan Abd. Rahman
According to him, the problem had been brought to the attention of the Minister of Health, Khairy Jamaluddin by himself a few months ago to apply for allocations to upgrade and repair buildings and health equipment.
According to him, the process for approval to get allocations is expected in the near future if BN succeeds in forming the government.
“Two months ago I had a visit to the Tanjung Rambutan Clinic and I found that the clinic had too many patients who wanted to receive treatment so that it could not accommodate the large number. The waiting area is narrow to make the patient uncomfortable.
“Insufficient parking is also a problem and patients have to park their cars far apart from the traffic congestion on the main road. The clinic equipment needs to be upgraded, the clinic location needs to be moved.
“I have applied to the Minister of Health for the provision of upgrading and overhauling the clinic. I believe its approval is in process.
“If you win GE15, within a month you will get the minister’s approval process, that is what I myself have asked from Khairy,” he told Utusan Malaysia.
According to him, the problem of many patients seeking treatment at the Tanjung Rambutan Clinic is due to the closure of the 1Malaysia Clinic in a residential area near Bandar Baru Putra.
He said this caused residents of Bandar Baru Putra to go to the Tanjung Rambutan Clinic for treatment.
“This is what harmed us when Pakatan Harapan (PH) closed the 1Malaysia Clinic, eventually people flocked to the Tanjung Rambutan Clinic. If there was still the 1Malaysia Clinic, the people there would not come here.
“Before this was not like this when the 1Malaysia Clinic in Bandar Baru Putra was operating,” he said.
According to him, he is concerned about the condition of patients waiting for their turn to get treatment at the clinic who are sitting in an uncomfortable state.
He said, for that he donated 150 waiting benches for the comfort of patients during the Covid-19 epidemic and plans to get allocations to build permanent benches and a more comfortable waiting room,” he said.
“(Approval of allocation) This is indeed a decision of the Central Government, but I promise that if I am trusted as an assemblyman in Hulu Kinta, I will solve the problem at the Tanjung Rambutan Clinic,” he said. – MESSENGER
