Dr Fenton Ferguson demands the truth on matters in the health sector

November 16, 2010

The Opposition People’s National Party has accused the Government of being deliberately misleading about the total number of redundancies to result from the merger of the Health Corporation Limited and the National Health Fund.

“The Opposition is therefore calling on the minister to bring clarity to the matter and inform the nation of the truth of this redundancy exercise, rather than putting a spin on it,” Dr Ferguson said. He also raised questions about the internal control systems of the National Health Fund and how the liabilities of the Health Corporation Limited will be treated in the merger and the impact on its ability to deliver quality health care.

The reported critical shortage of equipment and personnel at the Kingston Public Hospital (KPH) is causing concern for the Opposition People’s National Party.

Dr Fenton Ferguson, the opposition spokesman on health, says the matter has reached crisis proportions and needs the urgent attention of Minister of Health Rudyard Spencer.

According to Ferguson, the health minister needs to probe the situation at the KPH and take the necessary steps to address the problem.
