The National Legislative Assembly (NLA) has called on the government to answer questions related to overcrowding at public hospitals.

The NLA meeting on January 15th asked Public Health Minister Piyasakol Sakolsattayatorn to explain government policy on patient overcrowding and his solutions to the problem.

Dr. Piyasakol has affirmed that the government considers the issue an important priority. Short-term solutions include strengthening the potential of communities to care for their own health, setting up medical teams to perform house calls, and establishing community health centers that provide comprehensive medical services.

According to the ministry’s five-year plan for 2017-2021, long-term solutions deal with ways to provide elder care for bed-ridden seniors, as Thailand shifts towards an aging society.
