Health Minister, Dr. Fenton Ferguson says he should have the results of a comprehensive audit into the island’s health facilities, by next week.

In May, Dr. Ferguson had instructed the Chairmen of all regional health authorities to undertake a comprehensive resource audit of major health facilities to determine the availability of supplies and the problems involved in supply chain management.

The audit was ordered following complaints from the President of the Medical Doctors Association about the lack of equipment and chronic shortage of basic supplies available to health professionals across the island.

Dr. Ferguson says he’ll be sharing the audit findings with the public.
