Raise Your Voice Saint Lucia demands Health Minister’s resignation

[Press Release] Raise Your Voice Saint Lucia Inc.: Having listened to the many incoherent, jumbled and confusing pronouncements of Sen. Mary Isaac, prior to and during her appearance on Newsmaker Live, with respect to the completion of St. Jude Hospital, the transitioning from Victoria Hospital to Owen King EU Hospital and the proposed privatization of the public health system, combined with Sen. Isaac’s inability to lead the Ministry of Health & Wellness, leaves us with no choice but to demand her immediate resignation as Minister of Health, so a suitable alternative can deal with this pending public health crisis in St. Lucia.

Senator Isaac has continuously failed the citizens as Minister of Health & Wellness; in addition, she has not taken a strong, consistent and unwavering stance for the non-privatization of the Public Health System or for the completion of St. Jude Hospital, a critical institution for provision of health services to the people of the South and in case of emergency, as a trauma centre should we ever have to deal with a mass casualty situation at the Hewannora International Airport.

Raise Your Voice Saint Lucia Inc believes Sen. Isaac has served no purpose, but to confuse the masses and should resign effectively immediately. Meanwhile, we call on Prime Minister Allen Chastanet, to appoint a new Health Minister, transition from Victoria Hospital to the Owen King EU Hospital, which is a gift from the tax payers of the European Union to the people of Saint Lucia and to complete St. Jude’s Hospital immediately.
