Foreign medical doctors in T&T

Mr Minister of Health for a non-medical doctor you are surviving but only barely.
Let us look at the positives.
The Mayaro and Sangre Grande facilities are competent.
You cannot continue blaming the previous government for everything.
That time has passed.
When I assume leadership of a facility and sign on I am responsible for everything and everybody.
I cannot blame the previous manager for anything.
Why do we have so many employed foreign doctors and so many unemployed T&T doctors?
Blaming the UNC is not the way to go.
I do not want to hear it.
You fix it and you fix it now.
I took a patient to a health facility and was told by an Indian national that there is nothing wrong with him, do not come back here.
The patient, in severe pain, was taken to San Fernando only to find out he had dengue fever.
Why are our young qualified nationals suffering while foreigners prosper?
These doctors are Dr Jekyll in the medical centres but Mr Hyde in the general hospitals.
Do you think T&T doctors could go to India and be employed?
See how many doctors leave the hospital abandoning their jobs and go to their private practices during normal working hours.
Tell me I lie, I dare you.
The Hippocratic Oath means different things to different people.
In T&T it means to make money.
The time has come to see about our own.
We need to employ our own qualified nationals.
Send these foreign doctors back to their land.
Employ our own.
I am a Trinidadian.
I love my country.
