MIOT Hospital services affected with expat staff gone

All of the Indian medical staff at the MIOT Pacific Hospital in Suva have left the country.
Reliable sources at MIOT say that the staff left in the past two months and this has affected most of the services offered at the hospital.
This has meant that services such as angiograms and stenting, which was being done for the first time in Fiji at the hospital is no longer available, meaning Fijians now need to seek treatment overseas.
FBC News contacted MIOT Executive Director, Pramesh Sharma, who, says he is willing to comment on the matter once he returns from abroad.
Health Minister Dr Ifereimi Waqainabete has confirmed that he is aware of claims that some of the expatriate doctors have left Fiji.
MIOT Hospital was first established in 2017 after BSP partnered with Oceania Hospital Private Limited. Under MIOT’s management, majority of specialist medical staff were Indian nationals.
