Pheelyp Edward 01:30 PM, Jan 05, 2019

Good day!

I would like to request for DOH Memorandum Circular 2017-0061 regarding patient rights.

I have seen a previous FOI request for this document last May 10, 2018, and the FOI officer responded by saying that "all DOH issuance are electronically archived in the DOH intranet."

However, the first link to the intranet In the DOH website (http://recordsvr.doh.gov.ph/appnet/public/p/ai/searchall.htm) leads to a runtime error, while the second link (https://dmas.doh.gov.ph) does not contain the document.

I look forward to your response.
