Unpopular hospital executive shuffles will proceed, insists new ministry head
Public Health Ministry’s new permanent secretary Sukhum Karnchanapimai has shrugged off criticism over the recent reshuffling of state-hospital directors.
The changes, which took effect from earlier this month, have caused an uproar among several senior officials.
“Transfers have been made in line with regulations,” Sukhum said on Wednesday as he inspected flood-hit areas in Prachuap Khiri Khan province.
Sukhum rose to the helm of the Public Health Ministry on October 1.
“I will not resign from my post,” Sukhum said amid rumours that the transfer uproar might soon load unbearable pressure on him.
