Klinik Kesihatan Padawan
It was my first time coming to this area, 60 km or 1 hour drive from Kuching. This clinic started its services in 1960 by a medical assistant. It was then upgraded to health clinic and officially opened in 1979 by Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Health then, En Jawan Empaling. This clinic is mainly run by medical assistant and nurses with scheduled visiting by medical officers. There’s a wide range of primary & community health services provided by this clinic which include outpatient services, NCD control, malaria & TB control, immunisation, maternal & child health, school health, environmental health, village health service, flying doctors service and others. The environment surrounding this clinic is great, clean with fresh air and excellent view next to the mountain. The clinic saw almost 4,000 new outpatient attendance in 2013.
