Sanook have interviewed former engineer Erwin Buse, 50, who has had a long running dispute with Hua Hin Hospital over charges.

 

Mr Buse, from the Netherlands, says that the hospital has overcharged him for each visit and slapped on a 15% surcharge just because he is not Thai. 

 

He is suffering from prostate cancer and has been treated at the hospital for 4 years.

He says they should charge him 50 baht not 300 for his visits every three months. And they should not have added 15% to his bills. 

 

The health authorities have already found he was in the right and offered him 12,746 baht back. 

 

But he has declined and on Friday went to Hua Hin police to register a formal complaint. 

 

Mr Buse has a 200 kilometer round trip to the hospital. He has a Thai wife and tends goats in the Klong Wan area of Prajuab Khiri Khan.

Hua Hin: Cancer sufferer still fighting for justice - so that others won't be conned

Hua Hin: Cancer sufferer still fighting for justice - so that others won't be conned

 

S__8470532-640x480.jpg

 

A Dutch man in a long running saga over a series of medical bills from a hospital in Hua Hin in 2015 - 2016 is still pursuing the case so that other foreigners won't get conned. 

 

The health authorities already found in favor of Edwin Buse, now 50, after a hospital in Hua Hin charged him an extra 300 baht (or 15% more) per visit for treatment for colon cancer. 

 

The authorities ordered the hospital to return 12,746 baht to Mr Buse, a former train engineer who now tends goats in Klong Wan district of Prachuap Khiri Khan.

 

He said in January that this was still not enough after he made 14 visits and got other treatment. 

 

Mr Buse has refused to accept the payout. Yesterday he went to meet with Pol Lt-Col Chaiwiwat Janthorn of the Hua Hin police to make a formal complaint. 

 

Mr Buse said that he had been treated for an extra 50 baht a time though he didn't specify what hospital. That was fine.

 

He said that it was not about the money - that can be paid later - it was about the principle of a hospital overcharging a foreigner and doing what they please despite health department regulations. 

 

He intends to keep fighting so that others are not forced to pay irregular charges in this manner.

Sanook reported that traffic on the Cha Am to Pranburi bypass came to a standstill for half an hour yesterday afternoon after a ten wheel truck carrying wood plowed into cars and trucks waiting at the Bang Chang Thaeng Krajat intersection lights. 

 

Parinya, 42, driving was with six relatives in a Toyota that was crushed. All were injured and taken to Cha Am and Hua Hin hospitals. The family were on their way back to Bangkok.

 

Rattanapong, the 32 year old driver of the ten wheeler, had to be cut free in a half hour operation. He survived and is now out of danger.

 

An 18 wheel truck trailer, a six wheel truck and a Honda car were also damaged. 

 

Sanook said it is thought that Rattanapong had a "lap nai" experience - a microsleep. 

 

He will face charges of negligent driving.

Gary Stevens Appointed Head Coach of Black Mountain Hua Hin Football Academy

Gary Stevens Appointed Head Coach of Black Mountain Hua Hin Football Academy

 

Gary Stevens and Raam.jpg

 

Former England, Totttenham and Brighton defender Gary Stevens is getting back to grass roots football. The 1984 UEFA Cup winner and 1986 World Cup veteran will start coaching at the Black Mountain Hua Hin Football Academy in September.

 

Stevens has managed Thai Port and Army FC in the Thai Premier League. He made 204 appearances for Tottenham between 1983 and 1990 but is excited to pursue a challenge outside of the professional game,

 

“The Black Mountain Hua Hin Football Academy is family run and the children here have so much enthusiasm for football. I love the pressure of professional management, despite the lack of job security but it will be refreshing for me to be able to work on a long term basis with children who are just playing because they love the game,” said Stevens.

 

He is also looking forwards to working with the Black Mountain Hua Hin Football Academy to provide coaching to children from impoverished backgrounds,

 

“One of the things that really appealed to me about the Black Mountain Hua Hin Football Academy is that they work closely with local charity Jungle Aid to do coaching for stateless children near the border with Myanmar. There is also a scholarship program which allows Thai children from impoverished backgrounds to play for free, as Hua Hin is my home now I was looking to get involved in a community program and I think this suits me perfectly.”

Phichaya Goyder, General Manager of the Black Mountain Hua Hin Football Academy, is excited to welcome Stevens to the team,

“We only opened in 2018 but the Black Mountain Hua Hin Football Academy has grown rapidly. We wanted to create a place where children of all backgrounds could come together and play football and Gary shares our vision. We are delighted to have someone with his experience and qualifications heading up our coaching team.”

 

The Black Mountain Hua Hin Football Academy is based at the Hua Hin International School in the award winning Black Mountain resort and is open to boys and girls aged 4-16. The academy is committed to being a force for good in the local community and has several charitable schemes set up.

Hua Hin City Under 15s Win SPS Mini League

Hua Hin City Under 15s Win SPS Mini League

 

hh1.jpg

 

The top Under 15 teams in town were in action at the SPS Mini League on Sunday morning. Hua Hin City emerged victorious with four wins out of four while Black Mountain Hua Hin Football Academy (BMHHFA) were the best of the rest.

 

The tournament kicked off with BMHHFA taking on SS (B) and the former emerged victorious, with a deflected free kick the only goal of the game. Hua Hin City won their first three games without conceding a goal to surge into first place.

 

Meanwhile BMHFA could only draw with Vanorn Kanong but comfortably beat SS (A) to set up a decider. Going into the penultimate game Hua Hin City knew that they only needed a point to win the tournament.

Meanwhile BMHHFA were faced with the unenviable task of beating Hua Hin City in order to win the tournament.  It was a close and competitive game, with the professional club’s goalkeeper pulling off a very good save in the early exchanges.

 

It proved to be decisive as Hua Hin City scored the only goal of the game on the counter attack to finish top of the table, without conceding a goal all day. Meanwhile BMHHFA had to settle for second place after narrowly coming up short against the best Under 15 team in the region.

 

After 10 matches the table finished with Hua Hin City in top spot, BMHHFA second and Vanorn Kanong third. The Inspire Hua Hin ‘player of the tournament’ award, chosen by the match officials, went to Saenchai Pengmoon of BMHHFA.

It has emerged that the Chiang Mai man who died after drinking a whole jug of beer in one go was at a company function at a hotel in the resort town of Cha-Am.

 

The practice of drinking competitions was criticized after the man died in hospital at the end of last month. 

 

The hotel was not named but Petchphoom Hot News said on Facebook that a team of police, health and local officials had visited the hotel to remind them of the law.

The hotel said that they had accepted a booking from 150 guests who were using a function room for activities associated with a company outing. 

 

Those activities were never specified to the hotel. 

 

Police reminded the hotel of the law relating to promotion of alcohol but no charges were made. 

 

Suwatpong, 35, passed out after consuming a jug of beer on June 29th. He later died in a Cha-Am hospital.

The Cha-Am district chief and his entourage went to investigate after social media posts suggested that sewage was flowing into the sea at the popular beach resort north of Hua Hin. 

 

Khajornsak Somboon admitted it was smelly but said it was natural in origin. It was not effluent from hotels or businesses.

He said that it was waterlogged water that has built up behind a klong due to water levels and release valves being different. 

 

When waves forced their way into the system the filthy water flowed out to the beach. 

 

The authorities are now looking for a solution.

Banmuang reported that following complaints a team from Prachuap Khiri Khan immigration arrested a 50 year old British man by the name of Michael Gary Doyle on Thursday. 
 
Mr Doyle's passport had expired in 2011 and he was consequently on overstay of 2,917 days since June of 2011. 
 
He was arrested at house number 22/8 on Phoonsuk Road in downtown Hua Hin.

Banmuang said Mr Doyle ran a beer bar and had been married to a Thai woman. 
 
When his wife died he went into depression and kept himself to himself. 
 
Pictures seemed to show immigration officers at the bar.
 
He is now in the custody of the Prachuap Khiri Khan immigration. 
 
Thaivisa notes that Banmuang said he was on 7 year overstay but this appeared to be an error as it was nearly 8 years according to the numbers reported.
