A team from the Sahaydri Group of Hospitals in India will be in the country this week to conduct Angio-grams and Advance Cardiology.
They will be based in Suva for almost three weeks conducting surgeries at a fraction of the cost involved in overseas treatment.
Health Ministry’s Spokesperson – Evelyn Mani says the team consists of ten doctors, nurses and cardio surgeons.
“It’s a public private partnership with the Ministry and Sahaydri hospital. We are trying to provide our people with services within the country so that way they don’t have to travel abroad to receive these specialist treatment.”
So far seven patients have shown interest in having their treatment done by the Sahaydri Group.
The Ministry is urging more patients to come forward.
Surgeons from India’s Sahaydri Hospital have been coming to Fiji since 2012.
