GPs claim loss of business; KJ to speak to his officers

http://www.mmail.com.my/sites/default/files/frontpage_26.pngGeneral practitioners in the country are now crying foul over the monopoly of a certain medical company under Education Malaysia Global Services which is allowed to carry out the mandatory medical screening on foreign students.

Some doctors claim profit sharing, or better known as fee splitting, is being practiced and this goes against the medical code of ethics.

Those who were involved in carrying out medical tests for foreign students claim they suffer a loss of business between RM10,000 to RM15,000 a year.

The Malaysian Medical Association insists they have not been formally told about EMGS's exclusive tie-up saying monopoly is not accepted among the fraternity. However, MMA acknowledged such matters were raised during its recent annual general meeting.

For the record, the foreign student who spoke to The Malay Mail about the delays in her visa application has been given the assurance by the Immigration Department that her matter will be "looked into".

Meanwhile, Sports Minister Khairy Jamaluddin revealed national hockey coach Paul Revington will stay on until the World League which begins next week.

As Revington has a contract with the National Sports Council and met officials from the ministry's funding arm in March, Khairy said he will speak to his officials to why no action was taken earlier.
