President David Granger and First Lady, Ms. Sandra Granger, yesterday completed their first round of medical examinations at the Good Health Medical Centre in Trinidad and Tobago under a Caribbean medical insurance scheme, and those results indicate a clean bill of health thus far. Mrs. Granger, according to the Ministry of the Presidency, first joined the scheme 28 years ago as a staff member at the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) Secretariat, and the President, as her spouse, was eligible to participate.
The First Couple has been traveling to Trinidad and Tobago for annual medical examinations for over 12 years, long before the President’s entrance into politics.
“They will both undergo two more days of physical examinations and medical tests as part of their annual medical check-up, which is usually done in August each year. However, President Granger opted to do those tests in May this year so that he would be in Guyana for the lead up to Local Government Elections, which are due this year,” the ministry explained.
There have been raised eyebrows over the need to visit Trinidad with some facilities available right in Guyana.
