In a press announcement, the Port Vila Family Health Center Director Dustin Tate informed the public that the clinic will be introducing a new lab with an onsite X-ray. Vila Central Hospital’s (VCH) decentralization policy has been followed by the Family Health Clinic.
This comes as a move to encourage the patients to avail themselves of the local clinical services in their area. The Family clinic provides general and maternal health care to patients and has been undergoing rapid changes to improve their functioning.
To facilitate the functioning of the lab, the clinic has hired new staff including, lab technicians, and nurses. The X-ray service will ensure easy access to patients.
