We confer with the letter, “Same drug cost much more at another hospital” (Dec 17).
Mr Eric Lee’s uncle visited the Ng Teng Fong General Hospital pharmacy with an exterior prescription from a common practitioner.
We honoured the prescription and our pharmacist proceeded to help him.
He was knowledgeable of the value and given the choice to buy the treatment at different hospitals. Mr Lee’s uncle proceeded to buy the treatment at our pharmacy’s record worth and subsequently submitted his suggestions to the hospital.
We thank Mr Lee’s uncle for his suggestions and have since adjusted the value of the treatment.
