By Aaron Humes: “Politics above professionalism” is how the United Democratic Party (UDP) summarizes the proposed changes to the structure of the Ministry of Health and Wellness, which it characterizes as “abolishing” the post of Director of Health Services.

The new posts of Director of Hospital Services and Director of Public Health and Wellness will not “have the authority or command the respect” held by the DHS’ office, the UDP asserts and notes that Public Service Minister Henry Charles Usher could not properly explain the rationale behind the move.

The UDP questions whether the DHS post will be made redundant, no longer necessary, and how the posts will be filled – from outside or through Ministry ranks.

The UDP further asserts that the post is technical, not political and to tamper with it at this critical time “is unthinkable, dangerous and deadly.”

Minister Michel Chebat has yet to publicly comment.
