Health Minister, Dr Fenton Ferguson, has lashed out against his critiques, claiming he is being blamed for everything negative that happens within the health sector.
“And so it has been a difficult road. Everything that happens is Minister Fenton. There is no governance structure anymore in the sector. Chick-V come, is the minister, hand, foot and mouth disease come, is the minister,” said Ferguson.
The minister made known his feelings on the matter during his address of a ground breaking ceremony today for a cancer treatment centre in St James.
The centre is to be constructed on the compound of the Cornwall Regional Hospital located at Mount Salem in St James.
The facility forms part of two such facilities to be constructed in the Island. The other is to be constructed on the grounds of the St Joseph Hospital in Kingston. Both facilities are being funded by CHASE and Tourism Enhancement Fund to the tune of US$15 million.
