Doctor in the House: Dealing with a Backlog of 50,000 Non-COVID Procedures

After two years of a continuous battle against COVID-19, the Ministry of Health now finds itself with a backlog of more than 50,000 non-COVID procedures. How will this impact the health of patients and the incidence of non-communicable diseases in our population? How can our healthcare system cope, and what role can private hospitals play? Here to discuss this are Prof Dr Rosmawati Mohamed, consultant hepatologist and Master of the Academy of Medicine Malaysia, and Dr Kamal Amzan, CEO, Gleneagles Hospital Medini Johor.
