YONG PENG: The Health Ministry is investigating complaints against three Chinese doctors from Penang hospitals who allegedly refused to treat Malay patients.

 

The allegation was made by Pinang Tunggal assemblyman Datuk Roslan Saidin at a recent state assembly sitting.

He claimed that doctors at the Seberang Jaya and Kepala Batas hospitals declined to treat Malay patients.

Health Minister Datuk Seri Dr S. Subramaniam said he had directed the state Health Director to initiate a probe into the matter.

“I have asked the state director to find out the exact issue raised in the state assembly, speak to the assemblyman and learn more through thorough investigations.

“Then only we can say whether there is validity in the complaints,” he said when asked to comment on the allegation.

Subramaniam, who is also MIC deputy president, was speaking to reporters after meeting grassroots leaders here on Friday night.

On Monday, Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng issued a statement saying he wanted the Health Ministry to investigate the allegations against the doctors.

In another development, Subramaniam said Cabinet had discussed top scorers who failed to get places in public universities.

“Some of them did not get places while some other did not get the first choice in the course that they want.

“The students can make an appeal,” he said, adding that the government was also looking into providing places in private training institutions.

Recently, Deputy Education Minister P. Kamalanathan said that more than 18,000 students failed to get places in public universities although they had met the requirements, and urged them to appeal by Sunday.
