KUCHING, Feb 19: Bukut Health Clinic in Mukah will start operating in March, said Deputy Health Minister II Datuk Aaron Ago Dagang.

According to a news report from Sarawak Public Communication Unit (Ukas) today, the Type 6 clinic was completed in 2021 but was delayed due to Covid-19 and other matters.

“The construction of the health clinic, which was approved under the 10th Malaysia Plan (RMK-10), has been completed on Jan 31, together with its eight quarters,” he said in a press conference held after the launching ceremony of the Bukut Health Clinic on Friday.

Aaron noted the clinic is expected to cater to the needs of the local population, including foreigners who work in oil palm plantations and the surrounding area.

“The Sarawak government’s decision to build the health clinic is in line with the government’s determination to improve and enhance health services in the Simpang Bukut area as well as provide better health access to the local population,” he added.

Also present were Kakus assemblyman, who is also Minister in the Chief Minister Department Datuk John Sikie Tayai. — DayakDaily
