MINISTER for Health Doctor Neil Sharma visited health centres and hospitals in parts of Macuata and Cakaudrove yesterday.

Medical equipment and machines at the health centres were also checked to ensure they were in working order so patients received the best services.

Dr Sharma met patients and staff of health centres at Coqeloa, Wainikoro, Dogotuki, Saqani, Korotasere and the Savusavu District Hospital.

He said the visit was to ensure that services at all rural health centres were efficient and according to standard.

"We are focussing on providing efficient services for the public and improving communication," Dr Sharma said.

"It is important for patients to be informed of the medication applied on them and for what purpose," he said. "We also are looking at the well-being of our internal customers who are our staff as we need to know if they are happy with their working environment."
