THERE is a need to improve health service access in the country and fix the deteriorating health indicators, according to Port Moresby General Hospital boss Sam Vegogo.
Vegogo said this at the launching of the clinical services development plan 2011-16 and its strategic implementation plan after its annual general meeting yesterday at the hospital.
The plan was a call by the Department of Health to improve the public service in health delivery as stipulated in the Vision 2050, medium term development strategy and the National Health Plan.
The clinical services developmental plan provides a range of clinical services that will be developed locally to respond to emerging non-communicable diseases and to enhance surgical capability.
“This document identifies those existing services requiring enhancement and proposes a number of new services which will be required to achieve the objectives of the National Health Plan,” Vegogo said.
The plan was developed by the board of management in consultation with hospital clinical staff members and will develop supporting submissions to the government and donor partners for capital and recurrent funding necessary to implement the strategy.

was delivered to all rural and urban communities.
The plan encompasses the growing health needs of the localities using the hospital facility – National Capital District, Central and Gulf.
The hospital board presented to the Department of Health its annual reports for 2009 and 2010.
The reports presented summaries of performances in the three main directorates of the hospital – medical services, nursing services and finance and admi­nistration
