“BHB will extend its fast track service in the Emergency Department at the King Edward VII Memorial Hospital over the weekend to midnight to accommodate people who would normally have attended the UCC and others with non-emergency medical conditions. Individuals with genuine medical emergencies will be seen as usual.

“This temporary UCC closure is to ensure adequate staffing to safely manage continued high demand for all patients who require urgent or emergency care. BHB apologises for the inconvenience.”

    Why not hire staff just for the Clinic and house them nearby as there are plenty of empty Condos on Orange Hole Road.

    This clearly shows the 2 Bermudas the PLP loves to refer to for election purposes. When the UCC was closed it was “the OBA don’t care about us”. Now it’s “we can’t afford the staff” yet the budget will be balanced by 2019. The next 2 years will be fun to watch.

    Simple fix, move the dialysis unit out of KEMH to the Lamb Foggo You have better parking. A more pleasant place to be. Less congestion at Hospital and more people at South Side. The income from the dialysis unit would help support the daily operation. By closing and locking shut any health care facility for days will incur problems, mold comes to mine.
