Long wait times at hospitals

It’s been a long and accepted tradition that public hospitals in the country are slow in serving outpatients. As a result, many of us opt for private clinics to save time, despite having to pay out of our pocket.

I understand that public hospitals have more patients to deal with, thus the long wait times. However, I believe it is up to the authorities to ease the flow of the operations and find a way to serve the citizens and residents of the country better.

For someone with a job, it is better alternative to visit a private clinic than to endure hours in the waiting area, especially when I’m severely under the weather.
