Two new ambulances this week
THE QUEEN ELIZABETH HOSPITAL will be getting two new ambulances from this week.
This was revealed by Minister of Health John Boyce, who was speaking at a church service to mark the start of Nurses Week at the Pegwell Community Church in Christ Church yesterday.
He told the congregation, which included Permanent Secretary Tennyson Springer, other ministry officials as well as members of the Barbados Nurses Association, that the hospital would be taking possession of the two ambulances tomorrow.
“This will the sixth new ambulance that, as minister, I have made sure the hospital puts into its estimates and brings to Barbados because I know that being able to get out into the country and being able to get our people who are not well picked up and attended to, and being accompanied to the hospital, is an important part of the delivery of health care and urgent health care,” he said.
