National Workers Union calls on Health Ministry to publish the Welsh report

Health Minister Terrence Deyalsingh

The National Workers Union is calling on the Health Ministry to publish the Welsh report which was set up in November 2015 to review the health care system.

The NWU claims that the Welch Committee was set up to audit the current manner of operation of the Regional Health Authorities and its ability to provide equality in health care.

It adds that the committee focused on rationalizing the system and framework governing doctors who pursue private practice while employed in a public institution.

The report dealing with the RHAs was submitted on August 29th 2016.

However, Gerry Kangalee, NWU Education and Research Officer in a News Power Now interview pointed out that to date the full report has not been published.


Mr Kangalee claimed that publishing the report will ensure transparency and accountability.
