Ang Wei Neng on Building a Healthier SG

10:46 Min

During the debate on the Healthier SG White Paper, MP Ang Wei Neng brought up some concerns of general practitioners (GPs) he had spoken to. They include the maximum number of patients each GP can enrol and the basis for accepting or rejecting existing and new patients; the “perceived inequality” faced by GPs practising in non-residential settings who worry that fewer people, especially seniors, will choose them as the primary family doctor; and what will be done to ensure that the implementation of Healthier SG does not impose further administrative burdens on GP clinics. On funding, Mr Ang wanted to know how much of the estimated recurring cost of S$400 million a year will go towards organising healthy activities and encouraging public participation. He spoke in Parliament on Wednesday (Oct 5).
