Clinic honour for Sir Branford

Social Share

THE BLACK ROCK POLYCLINIC is in for a name change.
It will be rechristened in honour of President of the Senate, Sir Branford Taitt, next month.
Yesterday, an elated Sir Branford, Barbados’ longest serving Minister of Health (1987–1993), confirmed the move and said he was pleased.
“I feel good about the decision by the Minister [of Health Donville Inniss]. It would have had to be inspired by the minister,” said Sir Branford.
He added that if his understanding was correct, it was part of an initiative by the Ministry of Health to honour some people by renaming several health institutions.
“[This] is a good decision by the powers that be to recall and remember some of the people who have done yeoman service in the field of health in this country. I would like to think that I made a contribution, but I leave it for others to determine,” said Sir Branford, who lives within a mile of the Black Rock facility and was instrumental in having it built.
A former parliamentary representative for St Michael West, Sir Branford said the renaming of the polyclinic would be welcomed by his former constituents. (SP)
