THE Ministry of Health has promised new equipment will be supplied to the Sigatoka Hospital after receiving more than $1million worth of emergency items earlier this month.

Health Minister Dr Neil Sharma said the emergency equipment would be given to hospitals which had been submitting requests for new supplies.

"Another exciting event for the ministry is we've just received more than $1million worth of emergency equipment," said Dr Sharma.

"There are items being sought after by various medical centres. The Sigatoka Hospital is always asking for defibrillators and ECG machines and that is part of the equipment that has been received."

He said health centres in Suva were given new supplies last week.

"I've informed them to get Sigatoka the items that they need. Those are the equipment which will be in place at the hospital."
