霹雳州行动党主席倪可敏今天提醒全体希盟成员吸取国阵失败的教训,如今成功执政以后必须贯彻亷洁、透明、公正及良好施政的原则、切记“莫忘初衷”以人民利益为重,这样一来才能確保希盟政权常青永在!也是安顺区国会议员兼后廊州议员的倪可敏今天出席太平行动党大选义工慰劳晚宴上致词时说,

水能载舟、亦能覆舟,人民可以推翻国阵,如果希盟没有吸取教训,将来人民也可以一样改朝换代、政党轮替,因此希盟执政必须时刻紧记施政超越党派利益,凡事尊重民意。倪可敏指出,希盟从国阵接手的是愈一兆令吉国债的烂摊子,可是令人欣慰的是509变天至今,希盟不但一直在努力实现竞选承诺包括提早废除消费税,首相敦马更落实一系列改革,包括选贤与能、扑灭贪汚、竖立法冶、此外部长们至今也突显新政风,展现与民与赴时艰的精神,表现可圈可点。

贯彻党内讲真话文化

倪可敏强调,国阵会失败其中一个主因就是因为党内没有人敢讲真话,领袖身边充斥着捧大脚的人,由于到处都是马屁精,久而久之党内形成了劣币驱逐良币的文化,而且党内到处都是追逐个人利益的人,甚至一直到现在倒台之后还大梦未醒,因此这是希盟一定要牢牢铭记的教训。倪可敏奉劝全体党员时时刻刻都自我反省,虽然忠言逆耳,可是党必须具备讲真话的文化,这样行动党才有望长期执政并为国家带来新的希望。

Dr Dzulkefly to address surfeit of medical graduates

(09-06-2018)

THE Health Ministry will address the surfeit of medical graduates and new nurses who have yet to get placement in government hospitals. Health Minister Dr Dzulkefly Ahmad said the oversupply was due to an increase in medical graduates from local and foreign institutions. “The second reason is that the ministry was implementing the human resource optimisation policy, which means there will be no additional new posts offered but on a trade-off or redeployment,” he said in an exclusive interview with Bernama.

Dr Dzulkefly said the ministry was aware of the issue and to overcome it, the ministry had several measures. One of the measures mentioned was to change the method from permanent to contract appointment in which the officer has the opportunity to go under housemanship and obtain full registration as required under the Medical Act to improve the clinical skills and experience of the medical officers. Health Minister also to enforce a moratorium on medical programmes with the cooperation of the Education Ministry which will be extended to April 30, 2021 with the aim of imposing a quota on medical graduates by universities in the country. The original period was for five years from May 1, 2011 to April 30 2016 and it has been extended to April 30, 2021. He said under the moratorium, there would be no new medical programmes at degree level and no increase in the quota of medical student intake. However, the ministry will not be able to control the intake or medical graduates coming out of foreign universities.

“Apart from that, the ministry had increased the training slots for graduates from 10,835 to 11, 706 through additional graduate training hospitals. The ministry had increased the number of graduate training hospitals from 38 in 2009 to 47 hospitals now,” he said. It covers 44 hospitals under the ministry and three teaching hospitals (Universiti Sains Malaysia Hospital, Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia Medical Centre and Universiti Malaya Medical Centre) in 2018. Other measures taken included increasing the number graduate training posting. “Several new postings had been introduced in stages to increase training slots and placement of graduates in anaesthesia, emergency services, psychiatric and premier health departments. Dr Dzulkefly said the ministry would continue recruit Grade UD41 medical officers in phases under contract every two months, depending on the vacancies of training slots. On the issue of graduate nurses who have yet to receive placement in government hospitals, he said the ministry had reduced the number of nurse trainees from 2,274 in 2016 to 1,742 in 2018 (a drop of 23%). Apart from that, the ministry will also appeal for special approval from the Public Service Department (JPA) to increase the number of permanent posts or to allow the ministry to appoint graduate nurses from the Health Ministry Training Institutes on contract.

Dr Dzulkefly said the application is still under consideration by JPA, he said.
