Tigoa Nursing Home lacking maintenance, electricity, a water supply and basic furniture1 min read

Tingoa Area Health Center

Dear Editor,
Please consider this letter.

A member of the nursing staff at theTigoa Nursing Home in Renbel Province has written to the Solomon Start newspaper describing the accommodation still being used after many years since being posted to the rural health facility.
The writer has said rainwater is used for drinking and there is no electricity and no furniture such as tables and chairs.

The correspondent explains that a new Area Hospital has been built and handed over to the Province but there is no doctor at the hospital.

In the letter to the newspaper the writer has said the village community is assisted by doctors from Bintan Mining SI Limited and the company has already provided a clinic at Lavagu in the province.

A west Rennell elder has called for the Ministry of Health & Medical Services and the Provincial Government of Renbel to seriously look into providing better accommodation for nurses and posting a resident doctor at the capital Tigoa..

Yours Sincerely

Frank Short
