Several state hospitals hoist 'reform' flags

Several state hospitals are now flying banners reading "Reform Before Election", a stance promoted by anti-government demonstrators.

Dr Prachumporn Booncharoen, president of the Thai Federation of Medical Centre and General Hospital Doctors, said the banners were installed in line with the resolution of the Public Health Society (PHS).

Recently, the PHS issued a statement calling for the immediate resignation of the caretaker government and for political reform before an election is held.

Public Health Ministry permanent secretary Narong Sahametapat also endorsed the statement.
