Doctor shortage

Nishant Singh, Lautoka | Friday, January 19, 2018
The cheerful Health Minister Rosy Akbar ought to be commended for her brilliant initiative of launching the 24-hour health centre along the Suva-Nausori corridor.

Wow! It would serve some 200,000 fortunate citizens.

On the flip side, I believe madam Rosy should prioritise in rectifying the alarming doctor shortage faced in the country (some 300 FT 18/1), first before projecting future 24/7 health centres.

I believe it overtly defeats the purpose of expanding our health services while we face a scarcity of medical professionals.

By the way, any reason for this distressing shortage minister?
