The safety of our patients will always be our most important priority and that is always our mantra as we become a doctor to heal those in need…we are not to harm any soul but if an un trained professional without full medical skills and knowledge indiscriminately starts to treat like a ‘doctor’ will be most harmful and detrimental to the health and welfare of the people. And with that in mind, we must send a correct message and a stern reminder to all those unethical pharmacist out there who is playing the role of a ‘Doctor’ to stop such practices.
We are not here to sling MUD at each other profession……or to smear each other profession. We are here to correct any misleading facts or incorrect information that will eventually tarnish both noble professions. If they find that the Pharmaceutical Companies bonus/inducement scheme unfair then all participants must sit down and discussed it with the concerned Pharmaceutical Companies to have a fair and standardized pricing for all parties and to come out with a final and justified solution for ALL Malaysian citizens.
The Benefactors will be always for our people. It is their rights to accept and choose what is wrong or right for them.
