    The Ministry of Health (MoH) holds high hopes for students and in-service officers to contribute their refined services in Brunei Darussalam, upon completion of their overseas studies and training.

    Minister of Health Dato Seri Setia Dr Haji Mohd Isham bin Haji Jaafar highlighted this during a recent meeting and dialogue session in London, United Kingdom (UK) with students and in-service officers in the field of medicine, dentistry and allied health professionals, including those taking specialist courses.

    The minister touched on the continued efforts by the Brunei Government to raise the quality of life of citizens and residents in the Sultanate, with the provision of the best medical and health services.

    “One way to achieve this is to ensure that medical and health professionals, including allied health professionals, are provided with the highest level of education and training in their respective fields,” he said.

    Dato Seri Setia Dr Haji Mohd Isham pointed out that the number of doctors as well as medical and health professionals, including allied health professionals, in Brunei is “not enough” to meet the needs in expanding services and achieving rapid health infrastructure development.

    The government, through the Ministry of Education and Public Service Department, will continue to offer scholarships and in-service training to students and officers to pursue majors or expertise in the field of medicine and health, including allied health professionals, either locally and abroad.

    Meanwhile, High Commissioner of Brunei Darussalam to United Kingdom Laksamana Pertama (Rtd) Pengiran Dato Seri Pahlawan Norazmi bin Pengiran Haji Muhammad and Deputy Permanent Secretary (Professional) at the Ministry of Health Dr Ang Swee Hui also attended the get-together.

    The dialogue covered discussions on challenges in the future of health system, career paths in areas of expertise, in-service training opportunities, and the types of medical, dental, and allied health professionals specialties needed in the Sultanate.
