Govt to open new hotline
$250K set aside for complaints.
In a bid to promote accountability and better service delivery in our hospitals and health centres, Government has set aside $250,000 for the opening of a hotline to receive complaints from the public. Government believes it is important to reduce the frustration caused to all Fijians by health-related matters. Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama made the announcement while opening the 57th Annual Shree Sanatan Dharm Pratinidhi Sabha Convention at Cuvu College in Sigatoka yesterday. He said: “We have allocated $250,000 to establish a telephone hotline to receive complaints from the general public – a move designed to promote accountability and better service delivery in our hospitals and health centres.”
For the first time here, people who believe that they haven’t been treated fairly in our health system will have some form of recourse. “I also want to emphasise our efforts to become a healthier nation, which I know is also a Sanatan priority. We are giving a very healthy pay rise to doctors in our public hospitals to keep them in the system and attract more talented professionals into their ranks.”
Sanatan Sabha Fiji
The PM also paid tribute to the immense contribution that the Sabha has made to Fiji over the years since 1928. “I want every Fijian to know the wonderful story of the Sanatan Sabha – the largest Indo-Fijian religious organisation in Fiji – and the immense contribution its members have made to our nation over the years,” the PM said. He said it was the beginning of a journey that continued to this day. He thanked the contribution made to the education sector in Fiji with their total commitment to Government’s goal of making us a knowledge-based society – almost 120 institutions of learning.
