Klinik 1Malaysia, Taman Tunku runs on low budget

Manned by only one medical assistant, a nurse and one attendant, Klinik Komuniti 1Malaysia was officially opened by YB Tuan Haji Ahmad Lai, the Member of Parliament for Sebuti this afternoon.

Despite the limited budget from the federal government, the resident of Taman Tunku and its surrounding are generally pleased with the opening of the clinic.

YB Aidan Wing who spoked at the function told us that it would cost the patient RM6.80 for a return trip to the Polyclinic in town. Hence, with the opening of Klinik 1Malaysia, it will definitely save and benefits the lower income group, who are mostly from the nearby village of Kpg. Lusut.

YB Tuan Haji Ahmad Lai urged the people to continue supporting the Barisan Nasional in order to benefit from the various development plan that will be implemented in his area.

I was personally told that, the government is seriously identifying a suitable site for the Klinik Kesihatan Ibu dan Anak and probably a dental clinic.

jamesjg.com thank the government for the quick implementation of this clinic, since it was brought up last year, following the relocation of the Klinik Kesihatan Ibu dan Anak to a shoplot in town.

Residents may get light treatment there for as low as RM1 per treatment, RM15 for foreigners and free for children.  We hope the medical department could seek more funding and staff to manned the clinic, as three staff is sure not enough. I was told by an officer that yesterday the three staff attended to 130 patients from 10am – 10pm. It also mean, those staff could have skipped their meals!

Be thankful and for those who can afford to pay, kindly proceed to a private clinic, as the main objective of setting up this clinic is for the benefit of the lower income group, and hence, is not a competitor to the nearby private clinics.

2010 is the time to deliver

Still a bumpy final farewell

First, the not so good news.. The proposal to upgrade the road leading to the various cemeteries in Lambir was not submitted by our District Office to the ICU unit of the Prime Minister’s Dept. Nevertheless, the District Office gave assurance that they do have a budget for the proposal. YB Ahmad Lai will follow up with the District Officer.

Fine tuning

The proposal for a second link road from Taman Tunku/Taman Jelita to the main road/Airport Road is already in YB Ahmad Lai’s office and is under review.

Klinik 1Malaysia

Soon the residents of Taman Tunku will enjoy the “almost free” medical services near their doorstep with the opening of Klinik 1Malaysia next to a gif shop or nearby Submarine 3. The opening of the clinic is indeed a relief to the growing population of Miri, especially those coming from Taman Tunku, Upper Riam and Lambir.

Thank you to YB Ahmad Lai and Lukanisman Awang Sauni for the action and update to jamesjg.com and the residents of Taman Tunku/Taman Jelita.
