Healthcare services in Region Eight to be bolstered

first_imgHealthcare professionals at Paramakatoi in Region Eight are eagerly awaiting the arrival of new Radiology equipment from the Public Health Ministry (MPH), to boost the health services they offer locally.As published in Wednesday’s edition of this newspaper, the MPH has advertised for suitable companies to submit bids for the procurement of radiology equipment.Radiology equipment plays a vital role in hospitals, since it allows for radiologists to use an imaging technique called X-Ray to view the internal form of an object.Besides Paramakatoi, the Diamond Diagnostic Centre in Region Four is also expecting to receive this significant equipment. In the past, persons have been transferred from these locations to the Georgetown Public Hospital (GPHC) in order to be administered X-Ray tests. However, the machine at the GPHC has failed just recently, and persons have had to turn to private institutions for the necessary tests to be done. When the hospital was contacted to provide an update on the issue, personnel there were unable to so do.Nevertheless, Public Health Ministry’s Public Relations Officer Terrence Esseboom has noted that the project is indeed a timely one. Noting that the equipment is yet to be sourced, Esseboom said that bidding for the project will be done at the National Procurement and Tender Administration Board on June 12.last_img read more
