Cabinet approves around $20 million for the construction of a teaching and student facility at the Port of Spain General hospital.

Health Minister, Dr Faud Khan, speaking at Thursday’s Post Cabinet news briefing at the Office of the Prime Minister, St Clair, said the project will be placed for open tender, and done in collaboration with the University of the West Indies.

He said the government chose to build the facility in a bid to save the Port of Spain teaching facility from losing it status as an accredited facility.

The minister added that the North West Regional Health Authority (NWRHA), was also asked to build a four storey housing area which will be linked to another area designated for housing of doctors, interns and nurses.
