Ghana to help with nurses soon


Share post:

Barbados’ acute nursing shortage could soon be a thing of the past.

Thanks to the government of the Republic of Ghana, the island should soon have more than enough registered nurses to fill the void that has been a bugbear for the medical health sector for decades.

The good news was revealed after Prime Minister Mia Mottley and president of Ghana, Nana Akufu-Addo, held talks yesterday for more than two hours at Ilaro Court, the Prime Minister’s official residence.

The count could be up to 400 Ghanaian nurses on Barbadian soil within the next year, as negotiations for the extra help are expected to be ramped up from late June in the large West African nation. With Ghanaians no longer requiring visas to enter Barbados, the process is also expected to be smoother. (BA)
