Dr Eng Seng Chai enquired on the role of MSQH and what sort of influence and power they have over the medical professional bodies. The house was informed that the MSQH was originally set up to look into and certify the quality of healthcare in private and public hospitals. The MSQH was originally set up by three parties namely the Ministry of Health, the Malaysian Medical Association and the Academy of Family Physicians of Malaysia. MSQH was now proposed setting up guidelines for clinics. It was highlighted that the role of the MSQH in these professional matters was fiat accompli and thus it is one of the powers to be reckoned with. Dr Milton Lum pointed out that the FPMPAM, the PMPASKL, the MSQH and other organizations are registered societies and accreditation is mostly voluntary. He could not see how MSQH can do the clinic accreditation and why such legislation was given to one registered society. He urged members to join MSQH so that the profession will have a stronger voice and be well represented.3 ANNUAL REPORT 2010/2011 Dr Ho Shu Nam, Hon Secretary, presented the Annual Report for 2010/2011.
