Tuesday, June 09, 2015

MEMBERS of the public wishing to be medically treated on the US Navy Ship Mercy can attend screenings at the Savusavu Hospital on Thursday while those in Labasa can be screened at the Labasa Hospital on Friday.

A public flyer from the Labasa Hospital quoted General Surgeon Dr Maloni Bulanauca as saying the screenings will be held at the Savusavu Hospital on the 11th of June from 12pm to 4pm at the hospital grounds.

Dr Bulanauca said screenings would be held at the Labasa Hospital's SOPD Clinic and Hospital Departments from 9am to 4pm.

"People wishing to be screened need to produce their hospital card, a relative that can speak English, all regular medicine and reliable personal contact details," he said.

"Members of the public can contact doctors at Savusavu and Labasa Hospital for clarification purposes on 8850444 and 8811444 extensions 841169.

"People should expect reviews with specialists and long waits of two to three hours and we encourage people to get their snacks."

Dr Bulanauca has advised members of the public to get a booking date for their procedures if given the OK by their specialist.

Meanwhile the Vodafone Festival of the Friendly North will be assisting Labasa Hospital by providing free bus service to patients from Labasa to Savusavu returning daily from the 13th June to 18th June, 2015.

The carnival committee's executive, Jagat Prasad, said patients did not have to pay any single cent to get this treatment done.
