KUALA LUMPUR, Efforts to raise the level of cooperation between public and private hospitals to improve the country’s healthcare system have been carried out since the formation of the Health Advisory Council last month, according to Health Minister Datuk Seri Dr Dzulkefly Ahmad.

He said he was confident that the collaboration would also help public hospitals, in particular, to tackle various issues like shortage of specialists and facilities as well as heavy workload and rising cost of treatment.

Several private hospitals have expressed their wish to cooperate, and we welcome them, he told reporters after visiting the Ampang Hospital today.
