From Dr Leonard Goh I’m sorry, I’m leaving … although, I had initially pictured that I would certainly invest my entire specialist occupation as a federal government doctor in Malaysia.However, the facts of life have overtaken the idealist in me and also I have actually involved the inescapable verdict that I need to leave.Our medical care system is as well damaged, particularly when it involves the problem of agreement doctors. The more the federal government attempts to deal with the troubles associated with get medical professionals, the much more complex the problems get.This is the inevitable outcome of making such an important policy modification on a whim, without previous stakeholder engagements or any type of hint of potential planning. We seriously require a reset button, yet will certainly the federal government have the guts to admit that they were incorrect and agree to start over from scratch?I still have a long occupation path ahead of me. I know that given the appropriate possibilities, I have the potential to be a leader in the local, or also global, stage.Staying in government service would indicate refuting myself any kind of hope of reaching for the stars. I’m performed with running with all my could yet obtaining no place, on the large hamster wheel that is the wellness ministry.The workplace conditions are extremely savage. My associates and I are working past the point of sanity to treat our patients to the finest of our capabilities, yet the federal government has time after time stopped working to sustain us in this endeavour.We have actually been ripped off much way too much for far as well long. I decline to permit my selflessness as well as compassion to be manipulated anymore.It’s not my fault that I have been searching for alternatives outside the government solution, long before I completed my housemanship training.
My hand was forced by the government when they demanded hiring me on a simple three-year agreement, despite the fact that my job development is gauged in decades.Now, top that up with the still-ongoing series of management blunders and also haphazard planning by the health ministry. Is it not logical, then, for me to bravely seek the unclear pledge of greener fields and also success overseas, as opposed to meekly opt for the certain assurance of a bleak future in the federal government solution here?I’m sorry, I am leaving, but it is not without a lack of trying, though. Think me, I have actually tried. I have actually given up the majority of my time to support for jr physicians and also improvements in our health care system.I was the very first contract doctor to take up the position of SCHOMOS (Section Concerning Residence Administrations, Medical Officers as well as Specialists)state representative, and also so far the only one to have actually held a SCHOMOS exco placement at the nationwide level.I would love to think that I made a difference, possibly not enough and also instead trivial in the grand plan
of points, yet a distinction, nonetheless. Despite that, it’s all inadequate, as well late.I’m sorry, I am leaving, however this does not have to be goodbye permanently. While lots of medical professionals have actually left, lots are staying. I desire those remaining the absolute best in reigniting the engine of progress as well as obtaining the country back on track.Meanwhile, I’ll be advancing with my own path in a foreign land. When the time comes, I’ll be waiting at the station ahead, prepared to board the train once more, armed with my accumulated years of experience abroad.I’m sorry, I am leaving, as well as fingers crossed, we’ll cross courses again one day, tanah airku tercinta, tanah tumpahnya darahku.
