SOME services at Lautoka Hospital have been temporarily relocated because of extension and renovation of the accident and emergency department.

This relocation will avoid service disruptions and ensure that patients receive timely and efficient health services. As of last Friday, the physiotherapy department will provide temporary services from the women's trauma ward.

The physiotherapy department will attend to emergency outpatient cases and will continue with inpatient cases.

The physiotherapy division is looking at being fully operational from the first floor of the Lautoka Hospital from today.

Meanwhile, the inpatients at TB ward have been relocated to Tamavua. The public is advised that this arrangement will be in place until further notice.

The Health Ministry or Lautoka Hospital can be contacted for further information.
