Mobile clinic gives more opportunities to asnaf, B40 receive treatment

BUKIT MERTAJAM: After having an outpatient clinic located in the grounds of the Seberang Jaya Mosque here, Waqaf An-Nur Corporation Berhad (WANCorp) through the Waqaf An-Nur Clinic network is now expanding their wings in Penang by establishing a mobile clinic here.

The eighth mobile clinic was realized following the signing of a cooperation agreement (MoA) between three parties namely WANCorp together with KPJ Healthcare Berhad (KPJ Healthcare) and Zakat Pulau Pinang (ZPP).

Through the collaboration, ZPP will provide facilities such as vehicles that are completely modified according to maintenance requirements and specifications that have been approved by several parties including the Ministry of Health (KKM), manage maintenance costs and operational management expenses in addition to providing trained drivers.

Meanwhile, KPJ Healthcare through the Penang KPJ Specialist Hospital is responsible for providing specialist staff consisting of medical officers, nurses, care assistants and medicines as required according to current needs.

According to the Managing Officer and Chief Executive Officer of KPJ Healthcare, Norhaizam Mohammad, their mission is to provide quality healthcare services to all citizens regardless of background after 41 years as a service provider.

He said, for Penang, mobile clinics that offer basic treatment will focus on 15 areas throughout the state in stages.

“This mobile clinic is actually an alternative to the clinics in Seberang Jaya, but focuses on areas that are far from clinic and hospital facilities.

“To begin with, we will try to go to these 15 areas and if there is a need later, we will add (the coverage area for the mobile clinic),” he said.

He was met by reporters after the launch of the mobile clinic which was also attended by the Deputy Chairman of the Penang State Islamic Religious Council (MAINPP), Datuk Dr. Roslan Ahmad in Bandar Perda here, today.

In the meantime, ZPP Chief Executive Officer, Datuk Amran Hazali said, to begin with, his party has provided an allocation of up to RM400,000 for the purpose of vehicle purchase, renovation and design required for the mobile clinic.

At the same time, he said, ZPP will also provide an annual allocation of RM300,000 for the operation of the clinic.

“ZPP is pleased to continue to benefit the local community and be able to serve all levels of society, especially the poor and poor asnaf groups and families from the B40 (low-income) group.

“So far, ZPP has distributed as much as RM13.5 million for medical schemes to asnaf throughout Penang,” he added. – MESSENGER
