The selection of medical specialists from India who have applied for the positions in Fiji will be achieved through a stringent selection process.

This has been highlighted by the Minister for Health and Medical Services, Rosy Akbar, who is in India this week with a team to conduct the interviews for the recruitment of medical specialists.

“We have the budgetary allocation to recruit doctors and we have decided that we will get expatriate doctors as well,” Ms Akbar said.

“We are hoping to get specialists and it is going to boost our health services for our people. Applications are open for the next six months, it’s an open process and we will still have the applications coming in and for the ones we have received, we are ready to conduct interviews.

“The demand for doctors have increased and we need to fill in these gaps and one of the steps we undertaken is the appointment of locums but that was a short term measure.

“Getting specialists from India is long term way of addressing the issue and we will be offering contracts to those who meet our stringent criteria.

“We are looking to recruit nephrologists and doctors who specialize in diabetes treatment because of high incidence of diabetes cases.

“This would be an opportunity for the local doctors to work alongside the expertise that we are going to recruit to enhance the health services.”
