Barbadians are being promised that none of the services they’re used to getting at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital (QEH) will be cut.

Chief Executive Officer Dr Dexter James says discontinuing existing services is not an option.

Speaking after a presentation to the hospital’s Stroke Unit by CIBC First Caribbean International Bank today, he assured that patients will get the usual high standard of care.

We have taken austerity measures in minimizing and eliminating waste where it can be,” he said.

We will continue to sustain the existing package of services that we currently provide. If we find new and creative ways of delivering the services, then the shortages may not be as acute as people may think.”

James also called on Barbadians stop focusing on the negatives and rally around the institution.
