Minister for Health and Medical Services Rosy Akbar has reminded her senior medical staff to produce quality work for the benefit of the nation.

“The role that each one of us holds is of great responsibility,” Ms Akbar said.

“We need to perform our role with sincere dedication, commitment, diligence as we have been entrusted to deliver the essential health services for the greater benefit of our nation.”

Ms Akbar said this during the opening of the Health and Medical Services Senior Management meeting at Grand Pacific Hotel (GPH) in Suva, yesterday.

“This is my third week in my new portfolio and already I can see that there are numerous challenges that will and should be addressed through strategies to streamline the health services particularly those in the rural and community level,” she said.

“Addressing the challenges ahead will require team work and support among each one of you present here and it means increased networking among different units to find the best way forward,” she said.

Ms Akbar reminded senior managers they needed to ensure that the outputs were achieved for failure to do so would reflect on their leadership and it would be an injustice to the citizens who had faith in them to deliver these services.

“In the new civil service reform, it’s all about merit appointment and recognition on performance basis. There is no room for inefficiency and unprofessional attitude,” she said.

“Transformation is now driving excellence in the civil service, making some tough decisions to ensure that government services are delivered in a timely manner to enhance standards.”
