24-hour polyclinic praised
Officials and patients are singing the praises of the Winston Scott Polyclinic 24-hour system.
A NATION team visited the polyclinic recently during the first week of the new system. When the team arrived around 9 p.m., there were a number of cars in the lot though only two people were standing outside, with a security officer keeping close watch.
Inside, the security was tight as three security officers checked for any banned objects, guiding patients through metal detectors, patting down manually and utilising hand-held metal scanners.
“It’s been quiet for the last few nights; I don’t think people catch on yet,” one security officer said.
Initially, there were not many patients at the facility. Three were waiting in the pharmacy, which was due to close in an hour. However, more patients were waiting inside to be seen by a doctor. (CA)
