Will OKEU be privatized by UWP Government?

[Press Release] The Saint Lucia Labour Party has been reliably informed that the Government of Saint Lucia is on the verge of signing an agreement with a foreign entity to privatize the OKEU Hospital.

The Opposition urges the government not to pursue such a policy without the widest possible consultation with all parties including the doctors, nurses and other health care workers.

Privatizing health services can come at a huge price to the people of Saint Lucia particularly the lower income earners and the poor of the country.

Opposition Leader Hon Philip J. Pierre urges the Prime Minister to enter into serious dialogue and consultation before making any undertaking to any foreign or local entity that will lead to privatization of health services in the island.
