MPATT does not support joint army/police patrol

The Medical Practitioners Association of Trinidad and Tobago is not in support of a proposal to use joint army \ police patrol at the Eric Williams Medical Sciences Complex, Mt Hope.

During a recent meeting on security the idea was put forward.

It comes on the heels of an incident recently in which a female on the job trainee was allegedly attacked on the compound of the Complex.

Next week Health Minister Therese Baptiste Cornelis is expected to meet with officials of the North Central Regional Health Authority Board to discussed security and other matters of importance.

Commenting on the initiative,  Acting MPATT President, Shahenaz Mohammed, explained  the joint police and army patrol idea should be carefully  reviewed.

She confirmed other proposals were also explored to help improve security at the institution.
