ST JOHN RESIDENTS will be able to access health care at the soon to be completed polyclinic during the first quarter of 2013. According to Minister of Health Donville Inniss, construction of the facility that would provide a wide range of health care services at the primary level, would be completed by year end and should be in full operation before the end of March. Inniss was speaking to the media yesterday during a tour of the facility along with the Minister of Family, Culture, Sports and Youth Stephen Lashley, representatives from the Ministry of Social Care and parliamentary representative Mara Thompson. Inniss said the multi-purpose community complex, which would also house a constituency council office, Welfare Department, branch library, and Barbados’ first decentralized ambulance service, was $3 million over budget, having been initially estimated at $16. 4 million.
