Chia Shi-Lu on Healthcare Services Bill

(Updated: )

MP Chia Shi-Lu spoke in support of the Healthcare Services Bill in Parliament on Monday (Jan 6). He said it is timely, given the vast changes in the way healthcare is organised and delivered. He also asked about the costs involved in the conversion - especially for the smaller players - to the new licensing regime. He sought assurances that costs will not be increased inordinately for healthcare providers and passed on to patients. He also asked the Government if it would consider ways to pass on savings to patients.
