At 15,000 signatures, this petition becomes one of the top signed on!

Given the fact that the existing medical infrastructure is severely overburdened and it is not uncommon to see sick children and elderly in the corridors of the hospital because of no beds.

And whereas the San Fernando General Hospital serves the entire South region of Trinidad, where shortages of staff and shortages of vital equipment frequently lead to long delays in diagnosing illnesses.

And whereas these delays increase the likelihood of life threatening illnesses to cause irreversible damages or even death.

And whereas the citizens continue to suffer as a result of the lack of these adequate medical facilities

And whereas there is a need for expanding our tourism sector where the Couva Childrens Hospital would have served as a source for Medical Tourism

And whereas there exists a fully completed and equipped medical facility which is the Couva Childrens Hospital

Be it resolved that the Government through the Minister of Health, take urgent action to open the hospital now for the people of Trinidad and Tobago
