Yes that’s exactly the words used by our iPM to tell his audience about health services in Fiji. He told his audience at the launch of the Public Service Leadership Model at the Grand Pacific Hotel that good health services include “the level of compassion, empathy and sensitivity shown by our medical staff” and facilities “that are clean, well maintained and salubrious to making patients feel good about and confident in the public health system.” We know he is so confident in our health services that he has to go overseas at regular intervals to get his health checked with health systems that “clean, well maintained and salubrious”. This is an insult to the people who are dying all the time from problems that could be treated if we had health facilities that were “clean, well maintained and salubrious”. Instead our hospitals are referred to these days as Vale ni Mate, not Vale ni Bula.
