DOCTORS HAVE ACCUSED the Queen Elizabeth Hospital’s (QEH) management of misleading the public.
In a statement released yesterday, the Barbados Association of Medical Practitioners (BAMP) said none of the two QEH board members who spoke publicly on last Tuesday’s meeting had attended it and were now merely trying to save face.
In their clear-the-air statement, BAMP said neither QEH chairman Francis Depeiza nor chief executive officer Dexter James – who accused BAMP members of leaving the meeting because their main interest was salary increases – were at the meeting.
The union said those present, based on the minutes, a copy of which was obtained by the SATURDAY SUN, were QEH representatives Charmaine Napoleon-Ramsay, Susan Reeves, legal officer Wayne Clarke and a clerical officer, along with eight BAMP representatives led by president Dr Carlos Chase.
BAMP also stated that Napoleon-Ramsay had made it clear, on behalf of the board, that the only item for discussion was to be the appraisal system.
BAMP affirmed that the doctors wanted to discuss a 40-page document of proposals and “other matters of negotiation”, but the board had refused on the ground that it was outside the remit of the Ministry of the Civil Service.
