The Minister of Health and his team getting the details of the project.

Minister of Health John Boyce made his first tour of the St. John Polyclinic in that capacity today, and reported “tremendous satisfaction” with what he saw.

He told Barbados TODAY it now appeared that the facility, which also include a number of other municipal and community facilities, should be ready for opening around the end of June.

“There has been excellent progress on the facility,” he said, “and I am very happy with the work I saw. The progress has been excellent and I am satisfied that residents will be happy with what they are getting once we are able to open it.

He noted that in addition to the health facility, the complex would include a library, offices for the St. John Constituency Council, an amphitheatre for community productions and other amenities that would include the quality of the lives of residents.

Meanwhile, the new health minister said he had been making the rounds in the health sector, meeting key staff members and generally becoming familiar with all that comprised the ministry.

He said he had just completed talks with the Medical Staff Committee at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital and was pushing to have improvements in the Emergency Ambulance Service completed in the shortest possible time. He said four new ambulances were about to be added to the fleet, and this should greatly improve service to Barbadians. (RRM)
