BAMP Wants QEH Board To Resign
The Barbados Association of Medical Practitioners is calling for the resignation of the entire board of the Queen Elizabeth Hospital.
BAMP is warning Barbadians that it’s willing to undertake whatever action it deems necessary to effect change at the hospital.
This as it accuses the board of failing in its mandate to improve patient care at the premier health care facility.
In a strongly worded two page letter to the chairman of the QEH’s board, BAMP has called for a response by August 24.
BAMP is accusing the board of the QEH of failing to correct the many ills plaguing that institution.
And it says this has occurred despite the Board’s assurances that it has the right medicine for the facility.
BAMP says it has reviewed at length the various problems facing the QEH and has received little attention, if any by the QEH’s board.
