NDP LAUNCHES HOSPITAL PLAN WITH NO SITE IDENTIFIED

The New Democratic Party (NDP) last evening at its manifesto launch continues to make health one of its top priorities in the 2020 general elections alongside its “jobs, jobs, jobs” mantra.

Last evening in Petit Bordel, the party outlined its plans for the period 2020 – 2025 while also releasing an online version where a rendering of the proposed hospital was unveiled.

The Opposition said that:

“The ULP have promised to deliver a new national hospital since 2001. The NDP has a fully funded plan to build a new hospital in St Vincent and the Grenadines. We will ensure it is certified as a training school as well.”

While the party has not stated the cost of the hospital, it says that foreign investors will contribute to the construction of the new health facility through the Citizenship By Investment program or ‘selling passports’ as has been described by government critics.

In its 2015 general elections manifesto on page 31 [Online Edition], the party stated then:

“A convenient and central site has already been identified for the construction of a new, modern Hospital to replace MCMH; preliminary designs are in hand and funding is imminent.”

However, no mention has been made this time of the location of the modern hospital, preliminary designs or precise funding source which was “imminent” in 2015.

The party has also promised to upgrade or build new health care facilities across the country as part of its plans to improve the delivery of health services to Vincentians.
