Demolition works underway at Naoero Public Health Centre

However, services are unaffected as staff rally to ensure the public continue to receive the care they require.

The front office block of the public health centre was ravaged by fire on 16 December 2022 destroying rooms for eight public health services, according to a statement by GIO.
