HELPING YOUNG PATIENTS: Selayang Hospital and UMMC latest to offer this service.

KUALA LUMPUR: THE “School in Hospital” (SDH) programme will be extended to two more hospitals¬† next month.

Puan Sri Noorainee Abdul Rahman, the wife of Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin, said the two hospitals would be Hospital Selayang and University Malaya Medical Centre (UMMC).

“With these two, we’ll have 10 hospitals with the SDH programme.”

The programme was introduced at hospitals which have a high number of children needing prolonged treatment.

SDH began in 2011 to provide lessons while the students recuperated in hospital.

Other hospitals offering SDH are Kuala Lumpur Hospital, Ampang Hospital, Serdang Hospital, Sultanah Aminah Johor Hospital, Universiti Sains Malaysia Hospital in Kubang Krian, Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia Medical Centre, Sultan Haji Ahmad Shah Hospital in Temerloh and Sultanah Fatimah Specialist Hospital in Muar.
