Grenada (Now Grenada) – Prime Minister Dr the Right Honourable Keith Mitchell has commended the recognisable improvement in the level of service provided in the country’s hospitals.
Dr Mitchell made the comments as he met Tuesday with Minister for Hospital and Community Services Honourable Delma Thomas and senior officers within that ministry.
Speaking against the backdrop of the separation of hospital and community services from the general health portfolio, Dr Mitchell said the move was innovative and transformational and has yielded positive results. He said, “Since the introduction of this initiative, I can feel the difference. There is evidence of significant change and I must commend you for that. We are far from being perfect but the reality is that people are happy to see the change as it shows that Government is listening to their complaints. We must continue to work on the weaknesses that exist and bring about further improvement. I assure you that Government will continue to invest tremendous resources to improve health services in Grenada but we must continue to work together to bring about further change.”
Dr Mitchell acknowledged the Minister’s passion to effect change and he thanked the healthcare workers for the many sacrifices made and their continued commitment to the sector. He noted that while the Covid-19 pandemic has increased the challenges facing the sector, he is confident that through the cooperation of all involved, further improvements will come.
