The GPSU continues to believe that our medical staff including our nurses, continue to do their best in what, frequently, are particularly trying circumstances. Immediate attention to wages and salaries should, we believe, form part of His Excellency’s undertaking.”“The union also wishes too, that, in the shortest possible time that the President’s undertaking be extended to state-run health institutions across the country as the union noted that it is no secret that medical facilities elsewhere in coastal Guyana and in our hinterland regions leave much to be desired.“Those Guyanese residing in and outside of the capital and its immediate environs are deserving of access to medical care that competes with the best in the capital. The GPSU is mindful of the spartan conditions that obtain at the country’s only psychiatric institution situated at Fort Canje, Berbice, when measured against evidence of what would appear to be the mounting need for quality psychiatric care across the country. While we understand that Rome wasn’t built in a day, the GPSU feels duty bound to publicly emphasise this need to official and public attention.”
