The St Giles Hospital yesterday received a major boost to their services.

This was after the handover of $68,000 worth of furniture, kitchenware and homeware equipment from the Australian Facility Group.

While receiving the equipment on behalf of the Ministry of Health and Medical Services, Dr James Fong said the equipment would boost the patient’s therapeutic experience in terms of relating to reality

“It gives me great pleasure to be present here today, to witness the handover of much needed furniture, equipment and refurbishment works to the Saint Giles Hospital, a facility that has long been associated with psychological reformation in Fiji,” he said.

“Valued at $68,000 these much needed furniture and equipment which include tables, benches, painting artworks including refurbishment works in the facility will surely boost patient therapeutic experiences while at the hospital.

“At this point I would like to commend the partnership between the Saint Giles Hospital and the Australian Facility.

“This has spanned the last two years beginning in 2020 after the Facility stepped in to provide technical support towards the hospital’s endeavour to Scale up Clinical Governance Framework Standards and Infection Prevention Control Practice by establishing positions through support from the Facility.

“The former Clinical Governance Advisor Dr Nigel McCarley and the hospital management initiated this partnership, through the support of Mrs Ilisapeci Nabose and since then the hospital has been piloting the Clinical Governance Framework after establishing a Unit from 2018 which still exists to this day,” Dr Fong said.

“To the representatives of the Australian Facility present here today, the Government of Fiji, through the Ministry of Health and Medical Services, thanks you for your utmost generous support in co-funding and seeing this project through.”
