GG tours Heart & Stroke facility


Patients of the Heart & Stroke Foundation of Barbados had a very special visitor yesterday in Governor General Sir Elliott Belgrave.
Barbados’ Head of State toured the facility at Ladymeade Gardens, St Michael, and chatted with both staff and patients, while getting  a feel for how the organization works and helps people.
Board member and ambassador Almroth Williams told Sir Elliott about how he lost ten pounds exercising in the facility’s gym.
Sir Elliott also chatted with the manager of the emergency cardiac care department, Simon Fields, who took him through their lifesaving techniques.
Sir Elliott later said: “I appreciate coming here and I think they are doing an excellent job. I think more people should join up and in fact come earlier  [in life] to avoid some of the difficulties.” (CA)
