Ministry health

Dr. Fong – FBC News

The situation with the Ministry of Health would be worse if Fiji did not have the General Practitioners Scheme.

Permanent Secretary for Health Dr James Fong says he knows more help with the GP program and it will certainly help the Department of Health in the long run.

Currently, 14 general practitioners and one medical center general practitioner are engaged with the government under a new scheme.

The government will expand the private GP scheme.

The program was established to improve the scope and quality of medical services to members of the public during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Ministry of Economy indicates that there are plans to engage the services of additional private general practitioners to provide medical services to Fijians in the Lami-Suva-Nausori corridor, Navua, Korovou, Sigatoka, Nadi, Lautoka, Ba, Tavua, Rakiraki as well as in Labasa and Savusavu.

This initiative is also an opportunity for GPs to expand their patient base and support the public health system by providing needed medical care to Fijians.
