Rizal Medical Center staff will help develop medical staff at barangay centers, so residents don't have to go to public hospitals for treatment of common illnesses


Pasig Mayor Vico Sotto has agreed to fund a program aimed to ensure that the city’s barangay health centers are staffed with medical professionals capable of providing primary health care to residents.

Sotto announced on his official Facebook page on Monday, August 5, that he signed a memorandum of agreement (MOA) with the Rizal Medical Center (RMC) “for the education, training, and development of our primary health care doctors.”

“Napakahalaga nito, lalo na’t tungo tayo sa Universal Health Care. Kailangan malakas ang mga frontliners natin (This is very important, especially because we are headed toward Universal Health Care. Our frontliners need to be strong,” Sotto said.

The goal of the program is to enable doctors and other medical staff at barangay health centers to treat common illnesses, said Jojo Rivera, doctor and consultant at RMC, a top tier public hospital managed by the Department of Health.

RMC doctors will train their counterparts from barangay health centers, which should be the go-to place for any patient seeking government-assisted health or medical services.

At present, patients from all over Pasig and beyond go to RMC and other public hospitals for treatment of even common illnesses that should be manageable at the barangay level, Rivera said.
