Tonga signs medical referral deal with Indian hospital group

The chief executive of Tonga's Ministry of Health says the Apollo hospital group has been receiving referrals from Fiji for the past six years and from Samoa over the last year.

Dr Siale 'Akauola said a Tongan medical team visited the hospital in India before the new agreement was signed.

He said the deal was an affordable option for Tonga.
