MINISTRY of Health staff have been reminded that quality and efficient healthcare services should be the priority of the Ministry.

Minister for Health and Medical Services Dr Ifereimi Waqainabete issued this challenge while briefing them on the new initiatives the ministry will now embark on to provide a robust healthcare service delivery.

Dr Waqainabete highlighted his very first concern is the provision of comfortable workstations for the staff so that they can discharge their duties diligently and efficiently.

“As senior managers of the ministry you must ensure that the health facilities are maintained and resourced well that attract people to choose the health department as their first choice of work,” Dr Waqainabete said.

He also directed the health staff to further strengthen the health services as a way forward to address the needs of the people.

“While I acknowledge your hard work, I want to remind you that you should be very professional with your work which will eventually meet the expectation of the patients as they look upon us.”
