Doctor in the House: Is Cancer Care Too Fragmented in Malaysia?

Fragmented cancer care - where patients have to go to different institutions for  different aspects of cancer care - can significantly impact patients both from a financial and medical perspective. If the process is streamlined, what would that look like and how much would that benefit patients? We speak to consultant urologist Dr George Lee, and Phoebe Ho, CEO of Integrated Oncology Centres to discuss if cancer care is fragmented in Malaysia, how it can be improved, and what we can learn from other healthcare systems in the region
