Port Moresby City Commission and Hospital extend Clinical Services

 Port Moresby General Hospital (PMGH) and National Capital District Provincial Health Authority (NCDPHA) recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to extend clinical services between both organisations.

Director Medical Services Dr. Kone Sobi explained that the MOU is like a operational clinical guide for both NCDPHA and PMGH to effectively collaborate in caring for patients in the NCD and also the provinces of Central and Gulf.

“We will be working closely towards signing another similar MOU with Central Province and hopefully Gulf. This we actually started talking about in 2019 but of course in 2020 when the COVID came in, it disrupted all the discussions,” said Dr. Sobi.

He said despite the COVID-19 disruptions, the day has arrived when the MOU was signed on the 11 May, 2023.

The MOU sets into motion the undertaking of reducing overcrowding of patients at PMGH whereby NCDPHA will take on some of the primary and secondary healthcare to lessen the load on PMGH.
