PSC To Appoint New Health Managers

PSC Chairman Mahe announcing the upcoming appointment of new health managers in the presence of Acting DG Wabaiat, Acting Public Health Director Pelam, during a visit to Santo yesterday

The Public Service Commission (PSC) will be appointing over 20 new health managers next week.

PSC Chairman, Martin Mahe, confirmed this while visiting health facilities on Santo yesterday with the new Acting Director General (DG) Johnson Wabaiat, Acting Director of Public Health, Donald Pelam, and the Acting Superintendent for the Northern Provincial Hospital (NPH), Dr Samuel Posikai.

Mr Mahe said PSC will also be appointing over 40 health staff to permanent positions.

Some of these positions have been left vacant for many years, with officers serving in acting capacity, according to Acting DG Wabaiat.

"The Ministry of Health (MoH) have had many different structures in the past years. This resulted in a lot of grievances,” Mahe said.

"The current commission formed in 2016 took the initiative to replace those systems with a single system."

The Commission will be approving the appointments in its meeting on Monday, said Chairman Mahe.
