The Tobago Regional Health Authority (TRHA) has a new board.
The board was installed on Monday and was immediately told by Secretary of Health, Wellness and Family Development Tracy Davidson-Celestine, that it will be called upon to do more with less.
The nine-member board, chaired by Ingrid Melville, will be in charge until 2022.
Other members include: Beverly Nola Adams (deputy chairman), Dr Carlton Guy, Dr Sandeep Kumar, Marilyn Procope-Beckles, Akissi London, Carlos Hazel, Ronald Celestine and Trudy Caraballo.
Davidson-Celestine told the members that “You must ensure that in everything you do there is value for money. Therefore, some of your first priorities must be the implementation of a performance management system, ensuring that there is quality management systems in place.”
She said the goal remains to make Tobago’s healthcare one of the best in the world.
“Our vision and objective is to make healthcare in Tobago the gold standard nationally, regionally and internationally. This is not an easy task, but it is a most significant one for the people of Tobago.”
