VALELEVU HEALTH CENTRE NOW OPENS 24 HOURS
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.
RUGBY GREATS MEET LOCAL FANS
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.
