In an interview with The Chronicle, the permanent secretary in the Ministry of Health and Child Care Dr Gerald Gwinji said plans were underway to revive heart operations in Bulawayo.
Mpilo Central Hospital last had that service 10 years ago. Said Dr Gwinji:
It is dependent on building the size and mixture of specialists in Bulawayo so they address all the cases we have at the moment. We are actually working on attracting those so that we decentralise the service to Bulawayo as it was long back.Those suffering from heart diseases should see doctors at public hospitals and be given appropriate advice with regards to treatments which can be internal or external.
