Following a government’s delegation visit to the National Referral Hospital on Monday, the Health Minister Hon. Dickson Mua said there was truth in what the doctors had said to the Prime about the urgent needs of the labor, ward and the post-natal and gynecology wards.
Dr.Mua has said he would look into the current state of the labor ward and had already instructed the Permanent Secretary of his Ministry to follow-up on the reported issues.
The Health Ministry said he was very impressed by the way the doctors had looked after their wards.
In a separate, but very welcome announcement, it was reported that a new birthing and urban health centre at Naha was under construction.
