Fiji’s Ministry of Health hopes to improve on efficiency in all hospitals and clinics across the country.

Minister in charge, Dr Neil Sharma said this is his main concern

He said with efficiency the health system will be better.

“We are looking at our international development partners, improving workforce, want to drive more efficiency in our system,” Dr Sharma said.

His comments follow increasing number of complaints received by patients over health services.

“Sometimes when you come to a hospital, you are seen, you are looked after, given overnight treatment and you are expected to pick up your medication the next day because the facilities are closed. But, some want it right away.

“People must realise that we have limited manpower.I can’t produce nurses, pharmacists overnight.”

He said the ministry is working hard to ensure better health services in Fiji.
