Professionalism and efficiency are two key areas that the Ministry of Health is looking to enhance this year.

Minister responsible, Dr. Iferemi Waqainabete says among their priority areas, the turnaround time for medical reports has now being standardized.

“We’ve now asked that all medical reports be turned around in five working days, detailed reports within 10 working days so just being much more efficient in how and in the way we deal with things.”

The Minister adding that there are a number of simple steps they can implement to ensure a more coherent sector that is responsive to the needs of all Fijians.

Meanwhile $335 million has been allocated for the Health Ministry for this financial year.
