MoH Union Minister calls for timely treatment of emergency patients


The MoH Union Minister makes an inspection tour around the Nay Pyi Taw People’s Hospital.

Union Minister for Health Professor Dr Thet Khaing Win said if patients with emergency medical conditions such as gastric bleeding, stroke, and myocardial infarction receive timely medical care, their lives can be saved.
The Union Minister gave the instructions during the meeting with the Medical Superintendent, Professors, and doctors in charge at the Nay Pyi Taw People’s Hospital (1,000-bed) yesterday morning. He expressed words of thanks to all the health workers who were working hard to ensure the regular operation of the hospital and the provision of emergency medical care.
“Now is the time to step up efforts to improve access to medical care and human health resources for the people. People’s hospitals are the mainstays of the people, and efforts must be made to upgrade the emergency and regular medical services and provide effective treatment,” he said.
It is learnt that Nay Pyi Taw People’s Hospital (1000-bed) is a affiliate teaching hospital of the University of Medicine Magway but will soon be upgraded to a major teaching hospital. Furthermore, the Ministry of Health provides essential medicines and hospital supplies for medical treatment.
The Union minister called on the professors in charge and specialists to be involved in the development of human resources through acadeomic activities, to provide necessary facilities, including restrooms and classrooms for medical students, to become a teaching hospital, and to upgrade the hospital’s medical services to include transplant surgery (example: kidney transplant surgery).
Afterwards, the Union minister and party visited the One-Stop Diabetes Centre for Diabetes and its complications, patients being treated with anti-cancer drugs at the Department of Chemotherapy, installation and maintenance of equipment including SPECT Scan machine in the Nuclear Radiation Department, and Cardiac Catheterization Lab. It is learned that the necessary instructions were given after the inspection. — MNA
