LocalNews Health Minister defends decision to assign Chinese doctors to PMH by: – April 17, 2012 Sharing is caring! Share Share Tweet Share 28 Views 3 comments Hon. Julius Timothy.Minister with responsibility for health, Julius Timothy, has defended the government’s decision to assign four Chinese doctors to the country’s main hospital.Several citizens have raised concern regarding the Chinese doctor’s ability to properly communicate with Dominican patients and other staff members at the Princess Margaret Hospital with whom they will have to interact on a daily basis.The minister, who clarified that only one doctor has been approved and registered by the Medical Board, explained that the other three will be supervised by a specialist.He explained further that only one doctor was registered because the board was “satisfied” with the language communication and not because they were un-qualified as they “are all highly qualified for the job”.“The problem was in terms of communication whether they could communicate with patients in a way not to raise too much anxiety. As a result, the medical board registered one and we have three more doctors working with the hospital but they are not working alone. They are not registered by the medical board we’re treating them like interns so they’re working with the existing specialist to ensure that the proper service is given”.According to the minister, the Medical Board was “not satisfied” that the three doctor’s language competence was “adequate enough to deal with the patients so that they will deal with the patients but through a registered local doctor”.He said this arrangement has not posed “any difficulty at the moment, its well understood it’s a temporary period”.The doctors will be supervised and observed for “the next three months” until the Medical Board is “satisfied that their language competence is up to level,” after which they will be fully registered and able to work on their own”.Timothy said; the doctors have been on island “for a reasonable length of time” already and an additional three months should be adequate time for them to be able to speak English competently.He is confident “that based on what we have seen from them that they will be up to standards”.Dominica Vibes News
