By JOHN KAMEA MITCHELL Valelevu Health Cen­tre had started open­ing its doors 24 hours a day.This was done in re­sponse to in­creased de­mand for bet­ter health ser­vices from mem­bers of the greater Nas­inu area. “This means peo­ple living along the Suva to Nau­sori cor­ri­dor will be able to ac­cess heath ser­vices with­out miss­ing work or school and pre­vent peo­ple from over­crowd­ing the health cen­tre,” said Min­is­ter for Health, Rosy Ak­bar, while of­fi­cially launch­ing the 24-hour ser­vice. To cater for the change, the num­ber of doc­tors and nurses at the VHC has been in­creased and a 24-hour am­bu­lance ser­vice.


It is not ev­ery­day that we get to meet or see for­mer 7s rugby coach Ben Ryan, King of 7s Waisale Serevi, for­mer New Zealand cap­tain DJ Forbes and South African in­ter­na­tional ref­eree Rasta Rav­ishenge in one venue. Rugby fans who were at Lawaqa Park in Si­ga­toka last month had the chance to meet and greet these rugby greats dur­ing the 4-day tour­na­ment of the Mana Whey Fiji Co­ral Coast 7s 2018. Over­seas team like Hong Kong, USA and Ja­pan also fielded in teams that en­joyed cham­pagne Fijian rugby from lo­cal teams. Rasta stole the limelight from the other three rugby stars as it was his first trip to Fiji and he blended in well with lo­cals as he vis­ited vil­lages in the in­te­rior of Fiji dur­ing his free time.
