Entitled, ugly Singaporean

Changi General Hospital

KPKBing about 6-month wait to see specialist in Changi General Hospital. He refuses to try to make an appt at some other public hospital because he lives in Tampines and wants convenience of CGH.

Well then sit down and shut up.

Dr Lam Pin Min, Senior Minister of State for Health, mentioned in Parliament last week that the median waiting time for new subsidised specialist appointments has improved from 28 days in 2013 to 22 days in the first half of this year.

My personal experience did not seem to show this. On Nov 20, I happened to call Changi General Hospital (CGH) for an appointment for my chronic neck pain as a new subsidised patient referred by a clinic under the Community Health Assist Scheme (Chas).

To my surprise, the earliest appointment is on May 23, 2019, exactly 180 days of waiting to see a specialist.

In disbelief, I asked the staff member to double-check because I thought it is impossible that the waiting time is so long.

 

 

Unhappy anti-PAP user of SingHealth

Reminds me of an anti-PAP heavy user of SingHealth. He says he does not expect to have to wait to see a specialist once he has registered. I asked him if he ever had to wait to see a private specialist: he kept quiet. I later upset him by telling him that I no longer had to wait to see the GP in Marine Parade Polyclinic. At the appointed time, I see the doctor. What I didn’t tell him is that I scheduled the appointment at 2 pm: first one to see doctor.

    That patient is a cybernut or you? That patient was rebutting Lam Pin Min’s claim about the shorter wait in public hospitals, he is not telling us that he should not wait for 6 months.

    And then you turn around and mentioned about that “Unhappy anti-PAP user of SingHealth”! Just because your idol Lam Pin Min’s claim was rebutted and you now try to twist and turn the situation, trying to play the blame game??

    And BTW who the fiack is your so-called “FB friend” who says that “the reason why CGH clinic for patients with spinal and neck problems is overwhelmed is because it treats many injured NSmen. SAF refers neck and spinal injuries suffered by NSmen to this hospital. Any idea why?”

    Why must NSmen be referred to a civilian hospital which is already overwhelmed with patients? Why can’t MINDEF set up a hospital specially in Tekong to treat NSmen so as to free CGH from having to handle huge number of patients from the army?

    It was Lam Pin Min who made that stupid claim
    And now you the ass-licker trying to shift blame
    Quoting a different example to try to flame
    It shows that you and PAP all the same
    Because your reasoning is so lame
    And still continuing in this stupid game
    Yet you thought you have achieved enormous fame
    Not knowing you already have a smelly name
    But everyone here knows you got no shame

  • Once An IB Forever An IB:

    Six months is a very long wait by any measure.

    A more than a decade ago, PAP proudly ridiculed UK for being a welfare state and having long hospital waiting time. Now UK typical waiting time for surgery is less than a month and is essentially free, what about the billion dollar PAP cabinet? While others have progressed, Singapore has regressed.

    We have few that do real work now but many cronies that sleep on their job and cheap talking cock IBs that suck up to their master for a pack of chicken rice.

    Hi bro, I agree and also disagree with you.

    Agree – TRE is running on a very tight budget. When you make a submission, just observe the response time. It is pathetic to know they are running on very few staff. Most of its articles are not new, you get them earlier from others social media. Can’t blame them as you can see what’s happened to the others. Even regular writers are being warned and threatened. On this account, I agree that it might as well close down.

    Disagree – CI is just a catalyst for them to make you angry to ‘fight’ him. They need ‘stupid’ articles from him. TRE also wants to present as neutral social media to air both sides of the debates, not like some Shittimes only publish one-sided views – boring. They need cyber idiot like him to stir some shits, to keep it exciting. Sometimes, CI blows hot & cold articles to confuse readers here. He is also very smart when he criticizes his master he always insult everyone as cybernut here, just to keep his master happy. Cannot blame him as you know the systems here. Otherwise, there will be no nothing from CI to make life exciting here. Just ignore CI. However, TRE is doing a noble job, I feel that it is worth supporting. Please donate generously to keep it going and all the best to TRE.

    All these faults lie not on TRE, but the systems and the fixing of social media from this police state government. Hope Singaporeans wake up and vote PAP out.

    I’d rather read the Shit Times than reading articles from this Cynical Idiot. Shit Times may be biased but I do learn some writing skills from them, but for Cynical Idiot, I gained nothing from reading his shit. His style has become so predictable that many readers here already can distinguish his articles by just reading the title. When something becomes predictable, it really becomes boring, yet the stupid mod kept putting up his articles, despite many readers complaints. Most annoying is many of my rebuttals were deleted.

    And I believe it’s precisely the stupid mod constantly churning out the idiot’s article that many chose to boycott TRE. Notice that many regular names no longer appear and number of comments have shrunk to an average of 25 comments unlike last time when it could hit 100+.

    They now begging for $10k which I can easily afford but I’d rather spend that amount at orchard towers where I can get bj for one year with that amount!

    So TRE, please close down fast.

    Mod: All comments are moderated according to our TOS and AUP, regardless of who the commentators are. If your comments were deleted, its not because we don’t like you. I have seen some of your comments and deleted a few, because they were mostly very personal and adds no value to the discussion.

    If you don’t like a particular writer, just skip his articles. There is no need to get personal or blame TRE for publishing his articles. All our readers are entitled to their views and readers are also entitled to agree or disagree with them. That’s democracy.

    If the writer is wrong in facts or points, provide the facts and correct him or her. That’s how we learn from one another. I am sure the writer won’t mind and will welcome it.

    Surely we don’t go around hating and bashing our friends or relatives because they don’t agree with us for voting a political party we don’t like.

    Agreeing to disagree is the way forward if we want to have progress. Anyone not agreeing?

    Maybe,…the writer should “focused” on the “source of problem” rather than talk on kpkbing on a citizen’s right to “choose” his preferred hospital.

    Afterall,…does the writer know exactly what was the reason for this patient to insist on wanting that location only ???

    It could be Finances ? No caregivers ? he could be handicapped ???

    So,…I think the writer is being “cynical”,..and I hope he can have the “blessings” of GOD to make him “go through and experience” the same problems this patient is having…so that he can learn how to empatized instead of “critised” .

    @mod
    Oh, you deleted my comments because they got too personal and add no value? Cut that bullshit lah! Count the number of times CI used the word cybernuts, not personal? You mean that adds value? Don’t make my cock laugh la!

    We don’t go around bashing friends and relatives who don’t agree with us? Wah! So noble of you!
    Count the number of times CI made use of your main column to attack readers like Oxygen and Rabble rouser and many others! And yet you happily provide him with this platform.

    I mentioned many times that I’m not the only reader who got sick of reading his predictable way of writing and comments. With moderators like you who can’t maintain your stand without leaving loopholes for me to expose, all the more TRE should close down!

    Mod: There you go again. Are you having trouble engaging in a discussion without using vulgarities?

    Let me put this to you simple and straight forward:

    1. There is a whole world of difference between “ABC party is a bunch of ah guas that deserve to be fxck” and “XYZ is an ah gua that deserves to be fxck”.

    2. There is also a whole world of difference between “fuxk lar, 1 plus 1 is 2″ and “fxcking c***b** retard, cannot even get 1 plus 1 right”.

    The latter will ALWAYS be deleted as it is against our AUP and TOS, no exceptions. Of course there are times when the 2 of us (yes, we only have 2 mods) might miss a few comments which should have been deleted, this is where our readers can help by alerting us to it.

    There is a say “Do as the Romans do”. TRE provides a platform meant for healthy discourse for all who are willing to engage. If you don’t like what is said or discussed by all the readers or a certain writer, you are free to not engage or ignore the writer.

    Fct is, you don’t own TRE, so it is not your place to dictate who and what TRE should or should not allow or publish, although TRE always welcome constructive criticisms and do seriously review all of them.

    Plainly put, you are welcome to engage the readers and writers on TRE, but please do not use vulgarities and get personal. Such comments, regardless of who you are, will be deleted – according to our AUP and TOS.

    So unless TRE decides to change its AUP and TOS, there will be no exceptions.

    Hope I have made myself crystal clear. Thank you.

    @Mod
    Sk next time you just say it clearly that you don’t accept vulgarities, I would have accepted that, not try to paint a noble picture of yourself by saying, I got too personal which your dear CI is also guilty of or my comments don’t add value when many readers already have been condemning CI articles as worthless.

    Yes, I don’t own TRE that’s why I keep hoping it will close down. I am not interested in dictating what TRE should do, I am just voicing my displeasure as a reader, and questioning your wisdom and neutrality as a moderator, which is my right. BTW, CI is the one that lines to dictate how one should be appreciative of pap but came out with so-called examples that sneer at fellow citizens.

    So are you closing down? Pls do so quickly.

    Mod: I apologise if I did not make myself clear on the vulgarities. Incidentally, CI also don’t own TRE and so he is also not in a position to dictate what TRE should or should not publish. What you have cited is merely his own opinion in his particular article and it is also your right to agree or not agree with him.

    However, rest assured that all feedback are taken very seriously and should the team decides that a certain feedback is good for TRE, it will be implemented.

    Should TRE decides to close down, we will make an announcement. Thank you.

    Shit times is really shit when reporting local politics. Let’s face it, before internet, Shit Times was our main source of news. Every paper, no matter how biased, at least writes decent grammar which did help me in some ways. Before the internet era, it was unthinkable to use the F word but not now.

    Like many readers here, they may write shit but know how to code switch to proper English when required. So don’t judge from my response. It’s shitty response because I’m dealing with a piece of big shit that’s CI.

  • 6 mths wait is no joke:

    //I mean S’pore’s a pretty small place but he die die wants to go to Changi General Hospital and KPKBs if he has to wait six months to get an appt there.//

    yar lor. small place but no problem when it comes to open-leg policy jamming the place lor (e.g 6.9m or 10m ?) that got to wait for 6 mths lor. live near CGH of course want to go to CGH. or else, why build hospitals in different localities if not to spread the crowd.

    6 mths wait is no joke lar – that means other people are also having to wait for 2, 3, 4 or 5 mths lar (not long meh ? for neck & spine ?). increase headcount specialists in that dept lor since sinkie land white idiotic open-leg policy can afford to have so many people in such small place & quite efficient in building reasonably pricey houses for people leh.
