Opposition Spokeswoman on Health, Marlene Malahoo Forte, says she’s concerned about political appointments being made to sensitive positions, especially at the Ministry of Health.

This, after Nationwide News reported this morning that Consultant psychiatrist and lecturer at the University of the West Indies, Dr. Winston De La Hay, is set to replace Dr. Marion Bullock Ducasse as the Chief Medical Officer.

It’s understood that Dr. Bullock Ducasse is to demit office on February 1.

Senator Malahoo Forte says she’s not questioning Dr. De La Hay’s qualifications, but would like to see more transparency in appointments.

Senator Malahoo Forte says government’s must ensure that all appointments to senior positions are advertised.
