Ministry probes complaints

Luke Rawalai
Thursday, June 26, 2014

THE Ministry of Health is investigating the closure of the Waimaqera Health Centre on the South-end of Taveuni.

Minister for Health Doctor Neil Sharma ordered the centre's practitioner to return to the centre before the closure of business yesterday.

Dr Sharma said no health centre in the country should be closed at any time.

"The nurse practitioner serving at the Waimaqera Health Centre was moved to the Waiyevo Hospital for three days to cover for the doctor at the hospital who was attending a course in Suva," he said.

"The practitioner was moved to Waiyevo for three days only and, unfortunately, the nurse being moved was on leave.

"We have given strict instructions earlier and we will not tolerate this nonsense therefore the sub-divisional sister will be taken to task."
