Polyclinic ‘resident’ at a loss
The dormant St John Polyclinic is being used as political ammunition by both the Democratic Labour Party and Barbados Labour Party.
But while the two groups debate, one man, who has been calling the polyclinic home for the past nine years, is contemplating his future.
The latest word on the polyclinic came from Minister of Health Donville Inniss on Sunday night when he said Government had received ten tenders to complete the project, which he said would be restarted in March.
The DAILY NATION visited the site yesterday and spoke to Shawn Cook.
“I’m not sure what I will do if they ever fix this. I guess I’ll take my sheet and move on,” he said.
Cook, 30, is an outpatient of the Psychiatric Hospital and a former fruit vendor.
He said he was “all right” where he was as he did not get wet when it rained but he would not mind having a proper place to call home. (CA)
