Furniture to assist health staff
The Ministry of Health & Medical Services and Diabetes Fiji continue to improve services and facilities for diabetic patients.
6 foot care couches, 5 foot rests and 5 dressing desks were dispatched to health facilities in Sigatoka, Lautoka and Ba.
The furniture is worth $900 and will provide relief to foot care trained nurses attending to diabetic patients.
Nurses in the central and western division have undergone foot care training and have graduated from this program. These nurses are equipped with tool kits also.
The Health Ministry continues to remind the public to ensure that they engage in a healthy lifestyle. Eating a balanced diet and getting exercise is one of the simplest ways to prevent diabetes from developing.
