One 24-hour clinic for now


Share post:

Two were promised, but for now only one polyclinic will provide 24-hour service come July 1.

Minister of Health and Wellness Jeffrey Bostic announced yesterday that the Winston Scott Polyclinic will start this operation in another nine days as part of the fulfilment of the Government’s General Election promise.

He said eight doctors, 14 nurses and other personnel had been specially contracted to work.

“Everything is in order for the start of this service on July 1. We will spend the next several days doing some orientation for the staff at the Winston Scott Polyclinic so the new staff would be familiar with exactly what it is we expect them to do,” said Bostic during a press conference at his office at the Frank Walcott Building, Culloden Road, St Michael.
