2018/19 Budget: Suitable PPP partnership to be selected for Lautoka, Ba hospitals

GOVERNMENT is in the process of selecting a suitable partner for the Private Public Partnership of Lautoka and Ba Hospitals, says Attorney General Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum.

He said this would transform the Ba and Lautoka Hospitals into world-class health facilities.

“This is for the benefit of our people in the future,” he said.

While delivering the National Budget Address, Mr Sayed-Khaiyum said the facilities would provide better oncology services and treatment, kidney dialysis, procedures for NCDs and the 24/7 availability of open heart surgeries.

“It will not only be for the wealthy. There will also be a wide offering of new training opportunities for Fijian medical staff and it will put new cutting-edge technology in the hands of healthcare professionals.”
