San Fernando, 18th September, 2017. Healthcare services were temporarily suspended at the Rochard Douglas Health Centre in order to facilitate repairs to the roof of the health centre. As an interim measure, healthcare services and staff were relocated to the Lengua Health Centre on Tuesday 27th June, 2017.

Originally, it was projected that the roof works would have taken approximately two (2) months to complete.  However, after further review of the state of the health centre, it was determined that there were other works to be done. These included electrical, carpentry, painting and other internal refurbishment works.  Due to the additional works required, this has extended the initial deadline date.    The contract has since been awarded and works are scheduled to commence this week within an anticipated completion date of November 30, 2017.

In an effort to alleviate some of the temporary inconvenience caused, the Authority has committed to provide a Shuttle Service from the facility to the Lengua Health Centre effective Tuesday 19th September 2017. This service will be provided Tuesday to Friday between the hours of 7:3:0 am to 2:00 pm until all works are completed.   The pick off and drop off point for clients will be at Cumuto Junction commonly known the Number 6 Junction.

The Authority wishes to thank the residents of Rochard Douglas and the surrounding communities for their patience as we strive to provide quality health care to the communities that we serve. 

We apologize for any inconvenience caused, but this has become necessary to ensure a safe and healthy environment for all.
