Five new doctors for Region Two – Min. Parag
Minister of Public Service, Sonia Parag, MP, said five doctors will be deployed to the Pomeroon-Supenaam Region by next weekend, to improve the delivery of healthcare services there.
The minister made the disclosure to residents at the weekend, during a two-day Cabinet outreach to the region.
She spoke about the $2 billion multispecialty hospital which would be constructed in the region and what it would mean for the country’ health sector.
The new hospital is part of the Government’s vision to modernise healthcare in Guyana, while improving services to small and satellite communities.
It will also allow for specialised training of nurses, Medex and midwives, among others.
Minister Parag said the decision to boost the capacity of medical staff would also ensure universal healthcare service is provided.
“President Ali turn the sod for the construction of a $2 billion multispecialty hospital and that means that your medical care will improve, you will now have an intensive care unit in Essequibo- 24 hours services and as the Minister of Public Service, I will commit to providing this county with doctors at every health centre and hospital.”
The public service minister noted that special attention would be placed on the region’s health sector, particularly the staff capacity, to ensure that citizens are properly cared for when visiting any health facility.
