SDP unveils shadow health plan

TRIPLE the current funding to the Health Ministry, and consider building healthcare facilities in HDB estate void decks to ease the strain on the healthcare system. The Singapore Democratic Party (SDP) made these and other recommendations in its 'shadow health plan', unveiled on Tuesday night at its rally in Bukit Panjang. Called Healing With Care, the plan was launched by Dr James Gomez, a member of the opposition party's Sembawang GRC team, which is going up against an incumbent team from the People's Action Party (PAP) helmed by Health Minister Khaw Boon Wan. The plan criticises the PAP government's healthcare system, saying it is 'profit motivated' and ineffective in meeting rising healthcare costs. The result is that the bulk of the cost is financed out of Singaporeans' pockets, the SDP said. Read the full story in Wednesday's edition of The Straits Times
