Kuala Kangsar needs new hospital

KUALA KANGSAR, June 21 (Bernama) -- A new hospital with 150 beds should be built in Kuala Kangsar to provide better health and medication services to the people.


Perak Communication, Multimedia, NGO and Cooperative Development Committee chairman Hasnul Zulkarnain Abd Munaim said the new hospital would also enable the local people to seek specialist treatment.


He said the existing hospital was unable to cope with the large number of patients as well as lack of equipment.


“Patients who needed specialist treatment were referred to Ipoh and Taiping hospitals and this caused inconvenience to the visitors especially from Manong who have to travel about 100 kilometres to visit patients in Taiping or Ipoh," he told reporters here today.


Elaborating further, Hasnul Zulkarnain said he would discuss with the Health Ministry on the cost of construction of the new hospital as well as looking for a consultant to evaluate the project.
