KUCHING, Jan 6: Medical officers from Peninsular Malaysia must be ready to serve in any health facility in Sarawak under the supervision of the Malaysian Ministry of Health (MOH).

According to a news report from Sarawak Public Communication Unit (Ukas) yesterday, Deputy Health Minister Dato Lukanisman Awang Sauni said this is based on the needs and vacancies in hospitals and health clinics in the State.

“Sarawak is in need of workforce support to be placed in new health facilities that have been completed,” he told reporters when met during a working visit to Miri City Health Clinic on Friday (Jan 5).

Miri City Health Clinic started operating on Jan 2 to provide more comfortable facilities compared to the Jalan Merbau clinic, which was previously very crowded and cramped.

The clinic can accommodate between 500 and 800 patients while offering services including an Outpatient Unit, Radiology Unit, Dental Clinic and Pharmacy Unit. — DayakDaily
