New Opening Hours at Roseau Health Centre
The general public is being advised that effective Monday June 2, 2014, the Roseau Health Centre will now be opened from 8: 00 am to 7:00 pm Monday to Friday.
This change is as a result of the Ministry of Health’s pilot programme of a three to six months extension of services at the Centre.
Dr. Charlotte Jeremy Cuffy, Acting Director of Primary Health Care noted, it has been a longstanding intention of the Ministry of Health to extend the hours at the Health Centre.
Cuffy further noted, this is in an effort to improve the services to the Roseau Health District and to reduce the influx of patients at the Accident and Emergency Department (A&E), at the Princess Margaret Hospital, especially patients with non- emergency conditions.
This will also reduce the waiting time at the A&E.
She noted, the entire Roseau Health District Team which includes nurses from Soufriere to Warner, will be a part of the extended hours once they are available.
As customary, all major injuries and illness should be reported to the Accident and Emergency Department, at the Princess Margaret Hospital.
