PSU advises nurses at Paget Farm Clinic in Bequia to relocate due to clinic conditions

  • by

St. Vincent and the Grenadines Public Service Union (PSU) has advised nurses at the Paget Farm Health Clinic to relocate to the Port Elizabeth Hospital in Bequia.

In a media release on Monday (Oct. 19), the PSU said nurses have been complaining for the past two years about the compromised physical structure of the building. According to the union, earth movements have shifted the foundation of the facility and, as a consequence, portions of the building have separated from each other.

The matter was reported to BRAGSA and the Ministry of Health, Wellness and the Environment on more than one occasion, but no corrective action has been taken, the PSU reports.

The PSU says it is “appalled at the frivolous way in which the matter has been treated.”

“As a union, we are very much concerned about the well-being and safety of our workers and would make every effort to safeguard them.”
