The Ministry of Health is equally responsible
Kindly permit me space in your widely circulated paper to comment on the Ministry of Health’s failure to accept responsibility for letting hundreds of people get robbed.
Medical quackery has been around as long as medicine has existed. It exists in various forms and typically involves a scheme or remedy that is known to be false and sold for a profit. However, unless it happens to a loved one, relative or close friend, it just goes unnoticed.
As a parent of one of the students that was ripped off by the bogus Inter-American Nursing School, I am very angry and hurt to know that this could have all been prevented by quick action from the Ministry of Health.
How can for the past six months or longer, the Ministry of Health not know anything about Ms. Kissoon, her practicing medicine and the school she operated? And yet the Honourable Minister was seen greeting Ms Kissoon in the National Park at his very own health and fitness walk and fair!!
I am no expert here but isn’t it customary that in order for one to be practicing medicine or operate a medical laboratory they have to be registered with the Guyana Medical Council or with Standard and Technical Services, Mr. Minister?
However, it is nice to see that the ministry is offering courses for the aspiring young people and let us all hope that in future none of this happens again.
