KTP Hospital finally contacted me with an appointment. There was a gap of two months. It seemed rather long.
I have the option to be a private patient and be treated immediately. Money talks in Singapore. But, I prefer to wait and see what happens.
I suspect that they purposely lengthen the queue for subsidized patients so that more people would opt to pay and jump queue. I wonder if anyone in the Ministry of Health is looking at how the resources are being allocated between the private and subsidized patients?
Perhaps the Ministry also have a conflict of interest? They prefer more people to be private patients so that the government subsidy is reduced, and they score better in their KPI and get better bonuses?
