SUNGAI BULOH – The Ministry of Health (MOH) wants the educators under the ministry to be ready to assist trainees in need of help by practicing core values such as being friendly, empathising and attentive.
Its Deputy Minister Datuk Seri Dr Hilmi Yahaya said such values and attitudes were in line with the transformation plan of the 1Care for 1Malaysia (1Care), developed by MOH, in order to produce a national health system that was more responsive and to give choices to the people to obtain quality healthcare.
“1Care also aims at ensuring universal coverage of healthcare services based on the principle of unity and equality in continuing the implementation of a comprehensive healthcare system.
“As MOH personnel, educators who are experienced individuals in the medical field, are entrusted to provide the best services to all Malaysians irrespective of rank, race and religious faith of an individual.
“This trust should be carried out with sincerity and sense of responsibility,” he said in his opening speech of the National Transformation 2050 (TN50) in conjunction with the Ministry of Health Training Institute (ILKKM) Lecturers Day 2016/2017 here today.
Later, Hilmi held a dialogue session with about 400 lecturers from 32 ILKKM colleges throughout the country to share their views on the TN50 initiative introduced by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.
He also presented awards to lecturers who had performed well in carrying out their lecturing responsibilities. – BERNAMA
