The Ministry of Health (MOH) should urgently look into Madam Lily Ong's suggestion that subsidised wards in our hospitals should be air-conditioned (Air-con in subsidised wards a necessity, June 3).
A little comfort goes a long way in the recovery process of patients in subsidised wards, particularly so under the sweltering heat that is here to stay.
Patients admitted to C-class wards include the elderly and heartlanders who have made enormous contributions to Singapore's progress.
I believe these patients deserve to enjoy some comfort while undergoing treatment and recuperating in hospitals.
All government buildings in Singapore are air-conditioned. The corridors of our hospitals are air-conditioned, but, sadly, not the subsidised C-class wards.
I hope MOH can be generous enough towards patients to change that.
