Not sure if...
I AM glad the Ministry of Health is reviewing doctors' salaries ('MOH to review doctors' pay'; Wednesday) and hope that the welfare and salaries of the unsung heroes in hospitals will also be looked into.
They include nurses, physiotherapists, speech therapists and nutritionists.
Although public hospitals have a long way to go to catch up with private hospitals, the step to review salaries shows that the ministry is becoming more open to changes.
However, I hope this will not result in an increase in patients' bills.
Sure, why not? Raise service provider's pay, but keep the price to consumers the same. Don't see any problem there...
