21st July 2017, 11.30am to 1.00pm:

A "town-hall" gathering for UMMC staff was held at Dewan Sekapur Sirih, 1st Floor Emergency Building to clarify the current flow for supply of Special Formulary and PharmUMMC items to Federal Pensioners and their dependants, now that E-MASS has been discontinued.

The brief was given by UMMC Chief Pharmacist, Puan Hajjah Che Zuraini Sulaiman, followed by an in-depth summary by UMMC Deputy Director (Professional), Associate Prof. Azura Mansor.

The audience were made to understand the difference between the different categories of Government Servants and Pensioners and how the flow differs for each.

In general, doctors were advised to be more restrained in their choice of treatment unless there is no better than to prescribe a Special Formulary or PharmUMMC item.
