Chikungunya outbreak prompts change in clinic hours

Chikungunya outbreak prompts change in clinic hours

The Ministry of Health, Wellness, Human Services and Gender Relations continues its national response to the chikungunya virus which continues to place heavy demands on the national public health care system.

As part of the integrated management of this public health threat, changes to the dispensation of health care continue to be made in response to health needs of the populace. Consequently, adjustments have been made to the schedule of services offered at the Gros-Islet Polyclinic and the Castries Wellness Centre.

Services will now be offered from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at both of these facilities effective Saturday, July 19, 2014 and subsequent Saturdays until further notice.

The public is therefore asked to take note of this adjustment.

For further information, please contact the Community Nursing Department of the Ministry of Health at telephone number 452-2301 or Dr. Sharon Belmar-George at telephone number 468-5308.

  1. Came across this on net :

    Lots of articles about the use of papaya (pawpaw) leaf juice to aid in chikungunya. Hope it helps. But ask a nurse/doctor for advice first.
