More 1Malaysia clinics planned for next year

Residents of Pandamaran and its surrounding areas received some good news with the soon-to-be-opened basic healthcare centre under the 1Malaysia Clinic initiative.

The clinic is intended to serve the middle and low income population in the area.

Minister of Health Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai said the setting up of 1Malaysia Clinics nationwide was a reflection of the Government's aim to put the people's interest first, especially those in the middle and low income groups.

“In ensuring the people's wellbeing and easy access to quality healthcare, a total of 151 1Malaysia clinics are in operation this year nationwide and plans are under way to open another 70 clinics next year.”

“In line with the additional clinics, the rakyat, especially those in the interior areas will not have to concern themselves with access to basic healthcare.

“The clinics will be built in the vicinity of the chosen residential areas,” he said.

1Malaysia Clinics, which is an initiative under the Cost of Living NKRA, are community clinics located strategically around the country and are open daily from 10am to 10pm.

Nurses and medical assistants provide quality treatment for just RM1.
