(ZIZ News) — Health care in St. Kitts is on the move. So says Minister of Health the Hon. Marcella Liburd.
At a “Conversations for Progress” meeting on Wednesday, Minister Liburd supported her statement by pointing to the fact that many of the medical practitioners on island are citizens of the Federation.
“We offer quality health care in the Federation with highly trained health workers at all levels. The number of doctors and trained nurses and other healthcare providers has increased significantly. You only have to look around and you would see how many doctors we have –of all sorts—local doctors,” she said.
Minister Liburd also noted that the Clarence Fitzroy Bryant College now offers a Bachelors of Science degree in nursing.
“CFBC, the Clarence Fitzroy Bryant College has started this semester in August, a Bachelor of Science degree in nursing. A four year program that will train our nurses and they will become graduates with a Bachelor Of Science accredited by the University Of The West Indies at no cost to them. Good government,” she said.
Wednesday evening’s “Conversations for Progress” was held at the St. Johnston’s Community Center in West Basseterre.
