The Health Minister remarked that the Coronary Care Unit of Dr A.G Jeetoo Hospital won the Gold Award of the PSEA for the third consecutive time. This, he underlined, is evidence of the commitment, dedication, and hard work of the medical staff to continuously innovate and provide the best health care services to the public.
Speaking about the Department’s participation in the WSIS, he indicated that the personnel created a software where the details of patients taking methadone are recorded. He added that information of persons taking methadone, since its introduction in 2006 in Mauritius, is henceforth available on a digitalised system and is readily accessible.

Minister Jagutpal moreover seized this opportunity to express his thanks to all the personnel of his Ministry for their assiduous work round the clock and prompt service delivery.
