Ready cancer care for kids
IT IS NOW easier for children in Barbados with cancer and blood disorders to be assessed and treated locally.
This follows yesterday’s official opening of the Shaw Family Telemedicine Room at the University of the West Indies’ (UWI) Clinical Skills Building in Jemmotts Lane, The City.
The facility is the result of a partnership between UWI, the Centre for Global Child Health at the Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids) in Toronto, Canada, and Scotiabank.
It is part of the SickKids-Caribbean Initiative which includes Barbados, The Bahamas, Jamaica, St Lucia, St Vincent and the Grenadines and Trinidad and Tobago.
