HIS Majesty Sultan Haji Hassanal Bolkiah Mu’izzaddin Waddaulah ibni Al-Marhum Sultan Haji Omar ‘Ali Saifuddien Sa’adul Khairi Waddien, Sultan and Yang Di-Pertuan of Brunei Darussalam yesterday said the country’s health ministry needs to sustain its customer-centric values and put them into practice to ensure an objective healthcare system that benefits all.
Delivering a titah during an unscheduled visit to the Raja Isteri Pengiran Anak Saleha (RIPAS) Hospital in the capital yesterday morning, His Majesty focused on the need to improve the quality of healthcare services delivered in the country and touched on several issues that he said were brought to his attention recently.
Ensuring customer-friendliness and swift healthcare services for all:
The Ministry of Health (MoH) must continue to ultimately uphold and exercise its responsibilities and roles as an organisation central in maintaining the people’s well-being, His Majesty underscored in his titah. He added that people should not be asked to wait for long periods of time when they need medical attention.
