Minister of Public Health Volda Lawrence yesterday went to the Linden Hospital Complex, on the first of a three-day visit across the Region.
One of the Minister’s first tasks was to reconstitute the Committee of Management, which is headed by former Regional Chairman Mortimer Mingo.
In stressing her commitment to health care, the Minister said that she would like to stay from wherever she is and know that the people of Region Ten are receiving the best care.
“I’m not a product of the public service and so I would like you to reach outside of Government to get certain things done.”
She further emphasised that whatever needs to be done, must be done in a transparent manner.
“Let us zero in on the issues and look for ways to alleviate those issues,” Lawrence stressed.
She later toured the Hospital and met with nurses, which she said was her main agenda.
Meanwhile Members of the Management Committee were introduced by Chairman Mingo. Among the members are Regional Councillor Denise Belgrave; CEO Dr Mohammed Riyastat, GPSU representative Maurice Butters, representatives from the Linden Mayor and Town Council, the Regional Democratic Council, Linden Electricity Company Inc, the Cancer Society, Dr Pansy Armstrong, Dr Naomi Cox, Patrick Hutson, representatives from Religious Organizations and one from the PPP.
Minister Lawrence is expected to visit the Upper Demerara Hospital today and the Kwakwani facility tomorrow.
Dr Riyastat expressed pleasure with the Minister’s visit and thanked her for reconstituting the Management Committee.
