Build new Port-of-Spain hospital block

Al­most five months af­ter the cen­tral block at the Port-of-Spain Gen­er­al Hos­pi­tal was con­demned and evac­u­at­ed fol­low­ing the 6.9 earth­quake—de­mo­li­tion and re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion works are yet to be­gin.

Pres­i­dent of T&T Reg­is­tered Nurs­es As­so­ci­a­tion (TTR­NA) Idi Stew­art de­scribed the sit­u­a­tion at the health fa­cil­i­ty as one which had reached “cri­sis point.”

On Fri­day, Stew­art wrote to Prime Min­is­ter Dr Kei­th Row­ley im­plor­ing him to pri­ori­tise the project.
