Parliament will for the first time through the Education and Human Resources Training Committee (EHRTC) will be conducting an Inquiry into the Trainings of Medical and Health Practitioners for Solomon Islands starting Wednesday 21st to 23rd September 2016.

The Committee Chairman, Hon. Nestor Giro, informed the Parliament Media that the Inquiry is to ascertain the doubts that the public has on some of our trained medical practitioners recently.

“Thus the Committee must discuss with relevant stakeholders about the standards and certifications that should qualify medical practitioners to serve as human resources for the country,” Hon. Giro said.

Hon. Giro said health services are a vital part of our nation’s economic and social growth, therefore, the public is encouraged to make submissions to the committee.

These submissions will be compiled and put together in a report that will be presented in Parliament.

The Committee plans to examine the types and relevancy of trainings that our trainee medical doctors, nurses, dentist and other health care practitioners have received and are receiving.

The first part will commence on Wednesday 21st September and ends on Friday the 23rd September 2016, where a site visit on Friday 23rd of September to the National Referral Hospital and the School of Nursing and Allied Health Science at the Solomon Islands National University (SINU) will conclude the program.
