03 Mar Dalley offers help with Cornwall Regional Hospital
The People’s National Party reaffirms its commitment to do its part in creating a healthy Jamaica, whether we are in Government or Opposition. As such we are prepared to work with the Government to find a workable solution to the crisis facing the Cornwall Regional Hospital.
The Opposition Spokesman on Health Horace Dalley, along with members of his team, will meet with Health Minister Hon. Christopher Tufton on Tuesday March 7, 2017 to discuss solutions to this national issue and to ensure that in the end, Western Jamaica has quality healthcare. This meeting will be preceded by a tour of the Cornwall Regional Hospital on Monday, March 6, 2017 to meet with hospital staff and patients to get a first hand view of the situation.
The Opposition empathizes with and supports the professional staff and patients of the hospital, whose health has been compromised and who have consequently become anxious because there seems to be no end in sight. Therefore, we feel that it is important that we join the government in this cause to find an appropriate and speedy solution so that normalcy will return to Cornwall Regional Hospital. We will also be appealing to the Government to put measures in place to ensure that this situation does not happen again, in any medical facility in Jamaica.
