Childhood Diseases

Posted by: Ang | 2009-10-05



Have you heard anything in your professional capacity about the government proposed NHI ?
Being a non medical profession, all I have heard is what was reported on N24 (not much in other words).
I am exceptionally worried about my son, he is 3 years old with a Chronic Illness (Ulcerative Colitis). My concerns are that he will not receive the treatment he is getting now (we are on private medical, so he is currently being treated by a pediatrician and an adult gastro enterologist as we struggled to find a pediatrician with Crohns / Colitis experience to treat him).
Sorry if my question is full of ignorance, I’ m just a scared mom with a chronic ill child.
Thank you very much
