And there were 422 people enjoying the beneficial policy. In 2017, the bureau will continue improving “fifteen minutes’ Lhasa civil health care service circle” and make plans of hierarchical medical system. That means when people have an illness, they can go to the basic level hospital first. And if the hospital cannot deal with it, they can go to the upper level hospital for treatment. In this way, the government can disperse health care resources more efficiently. Also, this is good news for the Tibet travellers. When they have a Tibet tour, it will be easier to go to hospital for small illnesses.
