THE Ministry of Health received a timely gift of 16 pre-used computers from the Suva Rotary Club yesterday.

Speaking during the handing over ceremony of the computers, Suva Rotary Club president Peter Rankin said the computers would improve communications among staff members at various health centres in Suva.

"The computers are in very good condition," Mr Rankin said.

"And it can help improve the interaction between health staff members," he said.

Receiving the gift on behalf of the ministry, acting chief pharmacist Apolosi Vosanibola said the computers would be used by health officials to develop patient database.

"It will also help doctors and nurses keep a better record of patient's health and their check-ups," Mr Vosanibola said.
