Public Health Minister Pradit Sintawanarong has insisted that a rise in state hospital fees will not affect the level of care offered to patients. 

The ministry plans to increase fees by 5% to 10% on average at state hospitals nationwide. Some specialist service fees, such as brain and heart disease diagnoses, will rise by more than 50%.

Mr Pradit, speaking on Saturday on Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra’s weekly radio programme, said fees for more than 700 medical services would be increased.
