The cabinet's decision to upgrade more than 22,600 temporary medical staff to permanent government employees is expected to halt the drain of public sector nurses, the Nurses' Association of Thailand (Nat) says. 

Public Health Minister Pradit Sintawanarong has confirmed that 22,641 temporary medical staff, including 17,000 nurses, will be upgraded from contract workers to full-time government employees in the next three years.

The president of Nat, Jintana Unipan, said the upgrade will encourage more medical professionals to stay at jobs in the public health system.
