The Barbados Cricket Association (BCA) has moved swiftly to help one of the country’s oldest legends get urgent medical attention.

As a result of the BCA’s quick action, an unwell Sir Everton Weekes was able to gain admission to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital (QEH) earlier this week after it was reported that he was not admitted by another health institution.

“When it was drawn to our attention that he was at the QEH seeking treatment, I quickly contacted a well-known specialist, who was able to get him a private ward,” BCA chief executive officer, Dr Roland Toppin told the Weekend Nation yesterday.

“The BCA will take care of all his expenses and ensure that he is well taken care. He is now resting comfortably,” added Toppin, who declined to go into details on Sir Everton’s health.

According to reports, the 94-year-old Sir Everton, who was in need of emergency medical care, was taken to a private facility (EZS)
