Health Ministry Aims Target for Patients Surgery

While health ministry has stated that it would provide treatment in five months, the officials have also stated that their target is to reduce this time period to four months instead of five months by December.
At present, if a patient’s condition is not urgent enough to get specialist care within five months, if his or her condition can get worse then that person could be give a special status of Active Review. The hospital would be then supposed to reassess the condition of the patient in every six months for up to 18 months.
Some hospitals have accepted that they had to refuse surgeries to patients, who qualified for surgery, just because the surgery couldn’t be completed within the five month target.
