NURSES transferred to the Bagasau Nursing Station in Cakaudrove will be living in a fully-furnished, well-structured facility now that the government has completed the construction of a duplex quarters in the area.

The $212,000 project was built by the Department of Works in the North.

On Thursday last week, Prime Minister Rear Admiral Voreqe Bainimarama officially opened the grade six quarters and the upgraded station in front of more than 200 villagers and senior government officials.

In his address, Rear Admiral Bainimarama said health workers deserved the best place to live because they looked after the community in terms of providing health services.

"With the better accommodation, we expect the commitment of the workers to do their jobs even better," he said.

"This new accommodation recognises the value my government places on looking after the welfare of the workers in the remote parts of Fiji.

"There is much more that we want to do to provide ordinary Fijians with easier and more affordable access to health care."

Rear Admiral Bainimarama urged people of Bagasau to support the workers posted to the station.
