Barbados: QEH appeals to ambulance staff

A HOME FOR the Barbados Ambulance Service is where the Queen Elizabeth Hospital’s (QEH) heart still is.
But the country’s main medical facility is asking frustrated emergency ambulance personnel to bear with them in the wake of another move to a temporary facility, this time to a Barbados Investment and Development Corporation-owned building in Wildey, St Michael. The move from the previous site at Jemmotts Lane was precipitated by environmental issues. The QEH director of support services, Louise Bobb, is asking the employees to show a little more patience, since the goal remained for the hospital to rebuild a permanent home at the old Enmore complex, near the hospital. Last week, emergency medical technicians and paramedics bemoaned the distance of the new facility from the QEH, especially since they had to go off their new facility to perform certain logistics, like keeping the ambulances clean. The staff also complained about being constantly moved around. – See more at:
