Friday, June 20, 2014

THE Ministry of Health is conducting a continuing study on ways it can outsource more hospital services in all three divisions.

Minister for Health Dr Neil Sharma said following the outsourcing of security and cleaning services, they were looking at economical ways of outsourcing more services.

"We definitely need to look at the core business of health," he said.

"So we have outsourced security, cleaning, and various other things.

"We are investigating and looking at cost analysis on running services like laundry, kitchen and other services."

Dr Sharma confirmed there were plans to outsource the old people's home.

He said to his understanding, those outsourcing would not require people to pay more money.

"We are not talking about paying more," he said.

"We are talking about universal health coverage.

"You need to have quality food and if I can give the people of this country quality food, then that is my responsibility and duty."
