No compensation for Combermere medical bills

Social Share

THE MINISTRY OF EDUCATION is being pressed to compensate parents whose children have had to seek medical treatment linked to environmental issues at Combermere School.

Parent Jennifer Graham-Watkins said she has paid over $2 000 for her daughter’s medical treatment and has to come up with another $1 500 in order for her to get additional tests.

The unemployed mother has been taking her 15-year-old to specialists to have tests conducted after she started suffering from severe headaches and chest pains.

But Minister of Education Ronald Jones has made it clear parents should expect no such compensation for the medical bills they have incurred.

In fact, Jones said the parents would not be able to prove that a child was sick because of something that occurred at the school.
