What is this 28-year old Sikh medical doctor doing with a topless tycoon Tony Fernandes?

Meet Dr Palvinderjit Singh, an Ireland-trained medical doctor, who is teaming up with Fernandes and Kamaruddin Meranun – the duo seen as the engine that powers the low-cost airliner AirAsia – in a new venture.

They plan to move into affordable healthcare via Tune Care, the healthcare arm of Tune Group of Companies.

“Tune Care is my brainchild and I’ve have been working on this vision for several years. I am co-founding this with Tan Sri Tony Fernandes and Datuk Kamarudin Meranun. Currently, I lead a team of doctors, lawyers and finance experts to make this a reality,” Dr Palvinderjit tells Asia Samachar in an interview.

The group plans to launch and introduce services/ products in stages from early 2017, he added. [Stay tuned for the full story.]

For now, Dr Palvinderjit and his team need your input. Before it rolls out its products and services, Tune Care wants to know in detail what the general population require, what has been lacking and what will be the primary target.

“In my quest to launch affordable healthcare, I am trying to reach out to people and get feedback about their thoughts on healthcare,” he said, requesting Asia Samachar readers to answer a survey attached to the link below.
