No come a Jamaica if yuh sick
Many of Jamaica's healthcare professionals are currently executing a sickout. Yesterday Dr. Fenton Ferguson acknowledged that services at most health facilities island wide are on limited to emergency only basis.
I understand and sympathize with the healthcare professionals but healthcare was at a low before this sickout. When you are on an island that has limited choice of healthcare facilities this really affects the public.
According to public reports Ferguson told the House of Representatives that there was no "elective surgery" taking place at the healthcare facilities He did state that the ministry knew how to deal with such emergencies.
How do you feel about this crisis in Jamaica.
