Waiting their turn
With four new ambulances being handed over today to the Emergency Ambulance Service of the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, those previously donated to the Ministry of Health by the United Arab Emirates are yet to go into operation –– at least at the Psychiatric Hospital.
Director of the Black Rock mental institution, David Leacock, told Barbados TODAY it was not true that the two golf cart-type vehicles allocated to his facility were delivering food to the wards.
Leacock said the vehicles were currently on property, but had not yet been pressed into service and “are not delivering food to any wards”.
He noted that the ambulances only came into the hospital’s possession last week.
