There are more free time available for the junior doctors. The old system has produced an environment consists of overworked and sleep deprived doctors. The shift system helps to reduce those burden and help to improve the quality of the lifestyle for houseman officers. With more time to rest, I find that I am able to give more concentration to the work compared to the old system.
Regardless of this, there are still room of improvement in the new shift system. Overall, I hope that the entire healthcare system could be improved without any external pressure and ultimately, to give the best quality of health service to Malaysians in the future.
