Fiji has lost a young wonderful doctor in Dr Neville Narayan in tragic circumstances, says Health Minister Dr Ifereimi Waqainabete.
In a statement, Dr Waqainabete said it had been a sad week for the ministry family.
“Dr Narayan was well liked and was serving fellow Fijians in Ra,” the Minister said.
Dr Narayan was based at the Waimaro Health Centre.
Police believe he was swept by strong currents while swimming in the Nausori River in Nalawa, Ra last Friday.
The funeral service will be held tommorow.
The ministry also noted the passing of a senior midwife staff nurse Una Qio who was working at Aspen in Ba, having previously worked at the Health Ministry.
“It hurts to lose colleagues in their prime and who have contributed to saving and protecting lives.
“Today, I with my MOHMS and Aspen colleagues are visiting the families to pay condolences, show respect and thank God for a life of service.”
