THE Nadi Hospital Board of Visitors had to undergo restructuring because their performance was questionable.

Health minister Doctor Neil Sharma said no positive changes were seen during their tenure and services went from bad to worse. He said during his visit this month, he saw the need to change the management so people could receive proper services.

"People sometimes become complacent and that is when inefficiency kicks in but before inefficiency kicks in, these people need to be kicked out. Inefficiency in seniors brings slackness into juniors," Dr Sharma said.

"After resolving these issues, I had to go through the complete restructure of the board of visitors. Some of the members were on the board for a number of years however, their performance was questionable.

"We have noticed that people became complacent, jobs were not carried out, the public were deprived of quality services, equipment was not looked after properly, people had to wait longer hours," Dr Sharma said.

"The hospital was in dire need of a complete restructure,"he said.
