Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha has approved Bt5 billion from the central budget to help solve the problem of state hospitals operating at a loss, Public Health Minister Dr Piyasakol Sakolsatayadorn said on Friday.

 

Citing his discussion with the premier and the Bureau of Budget head in the morning, Piyasakol said Prayut was concerned but understood the issue of hospitals suffering from major cash-flow problems as Thailand becomes an ageing society.

 

He said the premier approved a Bt5 billion budget to help bail out hospitals and would observe the results from the expenditure in the third and fourth quarters. In the long term, it was necessary to reform the overall health system, to adjust the health insurance system and financial matters and ensure state hospitals have the ability to sustain their operations. Piyasakol said he would discuss these long-term solutions with related agencies at a later date.

 

He said five hospitals now had “Level 4 critical” cash-flow problems and they could be solved by improving the effectiveness of hospital management and injecting more money into them.

Hang on. After the report  a few days back, of a bunch of hospitals, 20 or so I think, were reported to be in serious debt, the Health Minister assured us this was not the case, and it was only five hospitals and the numbers were minimal. Now though, 5 Billion is going to be pumped in to solve a problem he told us didn't exist?

Does anyone in this Government ever bother to check their facts before making statements?

Seems to be the case that the 'facts' can change within a few hours. Sometimes see the 'facts' reversed in the same day. Total joke.

Hang on 2.

What the press writes is not necessarely the real story.

Besides, translations are not always right.

 

If the government, in whatever form, might offer an insurance for "farang"  that can not get coverage, resulting in less unpaid bills, that would certainly help.

It was planned, but deemed not so very urgent.

Well, it is.

Obviously.

I can smell a price increase for services in this statement.

They giveth not but taketh away at will. So ends the first reading.
