Update: 6:37PM MEMBERS of the public with artificial cardiac pacemakers are encouraged to take advantage of free checks conducted by a visiting cardiac team from New Zealand.

Friends of Fiji Heart Foundation chairman Craig Strong said the cardiac team at Lautoka Hospital conducted annual checks on patients with artificial pacemakers.

"Those who have undergone this procedure but did not go for annual reviews can do so with the cardiac team," he said.

"Patients need to contact Sister Shobhna on 6660399 at the Lautoka Hospital for appointments"

This year, a team of 60 medical personnel have arrived in Fiji to conduct surgeries for heart patients.

The team comprises cardiothoracic surgeons, cardiologists, anesthetists, technicians, specialist theatre nurses, intensive care and ward nurses and physiotherapists.

The team will be in Fiji for two weeks.
