Burglars steal critical medicine from hospital

Hun­dreds of thou­sands of dol­lars worth of crit­i­cal med­ica­tion for pa­tients, in­clud­ing those with ter­mi­nal ill­ness­es such as can­cer, have been stolen from the phar­ma­cy at the St James Med­ical Com­plex (SJMC).

In an im­me­di­ate re­sponse to this “tragedy” that struck the health in­sti­tu­tion, act­ing chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer at the North West Re­gion­al Health (NWRHA), Ter­ron Gilchrist con­demned the act and ques­tioned, “Why would some­one want to take God out of their thoughts and steal med­i­cine for the sur­vival of sick peo­ple?”
