Proper checks needed for foreign medical 'experts'

Member for Wabag, Dr Lino Tom, raised this issue today during the Parliament session.

Dr Tom said a lot of concern has been raised regarding the quality of work from foreign medical experts.

"It is a strict requirement elsewhere in the world for doctors to be accredited properly to be able to work in foreign countries."

He said currently the country has no medical board examination.

A board like that would have properly examined overseas trained medical professionals coming into the country, and conducted appropriate board accreditation examinations.

Look after your hair: Beauty expert

“Look after your hair and most importantly, the scalp, which is very important.”

And this message, she says, has the same level of importance to men, women, parents and youth.

She stressed that once the scalp is damaged, growing your hair will be difficult.

“Scalp can be damaged by so many reasons but most common we have come across is the ones damaged by chemicals after frequent visits to salons who are doing nothing but destroying hair and scalp in the name of fashion and beauty.”
