MPS in the Caribbean: a visit report
Dr Nancy Boodhoo, MPS head of operations in the Caribbean and Bermuda, visited the region in October and provides a round-up of the trip
The visit began in the British Virgin Islands on 17 October, where Dr Boodhoo, accompanied by Mr Al Neaber – International Service Development Co-ordinator at MPS – held a meeting with the Islands’ Health Services Authority. The meeting was with acting Chief Executive Ursula Wilson and under discussion were issues relating to risk management and current cases.
A day later it was over to Barbados, to meet with Angela Philips, the Executive Secretary of the Barbados Association of Medical Practitioners (BAMP). Mr Neaber updated Ms Philips on a number of developments at MPS – namely the global counselling service for members, new educational materials, and the Caribbean and Bermuda portal for the E-learning site.
While in the country, further meetings were held with panel lawyers Brian Barrow, of Carrington & Sealy, and Pat Cheltenham, of Charlton Chambers.
