National Healthcare Establishments & Workforce Statistics (Primary Care) 2008-2009

Home : Publications : National Healthcare Establishments & Workforce Statistics (Primary Care) 2008-2009
Primary care is the basic or general healthcare that focuses on the point at which ideally a patient first seeks assistance from the medical care system. It also forms the basis for referrals to secondary and tertiary level care1. To fulfil this function, primary care clinics have to be widely distributed and well equipped to allow appropriately trained staff to make sound clinical decisions on treatment and referrals. In Malaysia, there were 5104 private primary care clinics and 806 health clinics (henceforth known as Klinik Kesihatan or KK) reported in 2009. The overall density of primary care clinics was 2.09 per 10000 population and the number of private clinics outnumbered the public by 6.3 to 1. The highest and lowest densities per 10000 population by state were for Wilayah Persekutuan (WP) Kuala Lumpur (3.85) and Sabah & WP (1.02). Cross migration in health seeking behaviours could explain the high consultation rates per capita in WP Kuala Lumpur compared with the national average.
