Allegations that medical staff at the St. James Medical Complex turned away murder victim, Denzil Eccles because a shift change was in progress at the time, must be investigated. This is the assertion of former Health Minister, Dr. Fuad Khan.
Relatives of the 39 year old Maraval resident who was shot while standing at Jeffers Lane in St James on Saturday night, are now saying that he subsequently died, having been turned away by health facility staff at the St. James Medical Complex.
In an interview with News Power Now this morning, Dr. Khan said, such action is a definite no no.
Efforts by News Power Now to speak with CEO of the North West Regional Health Authority, Mr. Sheldon Cyrus, this morning, proved futile. We were told that Mr. Cyrus was in a meeting at the time of our call.
