The sound of the siren of the ambulance taking patients to the Supenaam Ferry Stelling, and at times the speed boat stelling, for transport to the Georgetown Public Hospital (GPHC) has become all familiar.
It is certainly time that the Public Health Ministry do an upgrade of the Suddie Public Hospital and or have more experienced and qualified doctors placed there. Over the years, that institution has had the number of doctors increased, but the quality of service apart from the foot care clinic and the ophthalmology department remains the same.
The public has been travelling regular to the city to seek medical attention at the GPHC and other private medical institutions. The only increase we have is the number of trips the ambulance makes to Georgetown and the referral of patients to the GPHC.
