The Minister for Health and Medi­cal Services, Dr Ifereimi Waqai­nabete, reminded his ministry staff that quality and efficient health­care services should be the priority of the ministry.

He issued this challenge to the staff members of the ministry while brief­ing them on the new initiatives that the ministry will now embark on to pro­vide robust healthcare service delivery.

Dr Waqainabete highlighted that his very first concern was the provision of comfortable workstations for the staff so that they can discharge their duties diligently and efficiently.

“As senior managers of the ministry you must ensure that the health facili­ties are maintained and resourced well to attract people to choose the health department as their first choice of work”, he said.

Dr Waqainabete also directed the health staff to further strengthen health services as a way forward to ad­dress the needs of the people.

“While I acknowledge your hard work, I want to remind you that you should be very professional with your work, which will eventually meet the expectation of the patients as they look upon us.”

The Health Ministry has envisioned a major lift in the health service provi­sion with more staff positions to be cre­ated to increase the doctors/nurses to patient ratio to international accepted levels.
