Barbados’ health system will have to wait just a bit longer before it receives that injection of Ghanaian nurses.
After a donation of water coolers to ten schools by the Barbados Muslim Association yesterday, Minister of Health Jeffrey Bostic told the media the nurses were now expected to arrive early February, and not this month as previously announced, as there were still some technical issues which had to be worked out.
“At the moment we anticipate, if everything goes according to plan, that the nurses will arrive between February 5 and 10. They will not be coming en masse but they should arrive [within] that time frame.
“Everything is being put in place for that, but there are one or two issues which have to be dealt with by the government of Ghana, in terms of obtaining visas,” he said.
