“Categorically false and fake news” are how the government’s senior communication officer calls a press release from NGO Raise Your Voice (Saint Lucia).
The organisation headed by Catherine Sealys in a May 2nd missive, alleged that the government would proceed to Parliament this week to amend the Millennium Heights Medical Complex act no. 1 of 2015.
This amendment according to Raise Your Voice would facilitate full privatization of the OKEU Hospital and the use of the Wellness Centre as a medical university.
Senior communications officer Nicole Mcdonald says this is far from the truth.
The press release further alleged that mental patients will be returned to their respective communities for community/family based mental healthcare, while those in need of hospitalization would be referred to the Victoria Hospital.
