My name is Alex Wong, the founder of Malaysian Primary Care Network, a social media platform to serve exclusively for Medical Doctors since March 2009.
Malaysian Primary Care Network or lovingly called MPCN is a new borderless world for our doctors who are locked up within the four walls of their practice be it private or public practice.
As the FOUNDER WHO IS not A DOCTOR, I never realized the huge impact it had on the medical fraternity.
In less than a year we have gathered 4,000 members and our numbers did not stop there. I wish to extend my thanks to all MPCNers who contributed to the growing number.
In the silent world of the facebook, there is a lot of rumblings and grumblings on the welfare of doctors, an almost neglected and taken for granted profession.
This interaction with high profiles gives me a sense of satisfaction that charity is for those who need it big or small and not about donating money to the down-trodden!!
This is also called social service!
In short, MPCN has increased values and brought about a positive change in the opinions and cooperativeness amongst the profession.
One is a doctor first then a specialist. Primary care doctors have bonded with their specialist via MPCN and vice versa.
In regular communication, there is warmth and great trusting friendship.
The hierarchy concept has narrowed. We need each other.
MPCN has helped change the world of doctors many of whom who thought they were alone were surprised that they had others in the same boat.
We have woken up many from their deep slumber.
Many doctors thought that they had to attend meetings in order to express themselves , leave the clinic or even close the clinic , leave their families , travel across the peninsular , spend on hotels , food etc.
Now with face book they are just a click away to information, discussions, debates, meetings!
It’s a pity that for registration purpose we had to coin a different name!!
Nevertheless the birth of MPCAM is established and today is its launch. Our meetings are held in the virtual world and it’s is beneficial not just for one person or a group of persons but to all doctors and specialists
Nothing in the world can be perfect!?
So bankrupted ideologies are unpleasant but a necessary evil for progress .Hence bros and sisters we need every one doctor practicing in this country to come into our fold.
MPCN IS HERE TO SERVE YOU, MPCAM IS HERE TO WORK WITH YOU FOR THE BETTERMENT OF THE PROFESSION AND THE KNOWLEDGE BASED SERVICE TO OUR DEAR PATIENTS WHO IN FACT ARE OUR BREAD AND BUTTERS.
SO AS YOUR FOUNDER OF THIS MPCN FACEBOOK, I AM PROUD OF THE MEMBERS WHO CONTINUE TO JOIN AND WORK IN UNISON AND ARE ABLE TO BRING ABOUT THAT CHANGE THAT CAN BRING THE HEALTH SERVICES TO THE NEXT LEVEL.
