[www.inewsguyana.com] – The Opposition People’s Progressive Party (PPP) says it is amused at recent statements emanating from the Minister of Public Health, Dr. George Norton concerning the state of the local health sector.
According to the PPP, “Norton has failed miserably to produce any well thought-out strategy for the Health Sector.”
The PPP claims that “within the sector itself there is growing dissatisfaction among health workers in general and professionals specifically.
“Demands are mounting to have the concerns of health workers addressed,” a statement issued on Friday added.
One of the outstanding matters of interest to the nation, according to the PPP, is “the non-utilization of the funds provided by the Indian Government for the construction of the Specialty Hospital. While the Minister continues to dither, the nation suffers and this golden opportunity is frittered away.”
