Sandy Bay health changes receive ‘positive’ report

Changes in the wake of the controversial closure of Sandy Bay clinic have been given a “generally positive” review, according to St Helena’s governor, Mark Capes.

Bus services were laid on to take patients to Half Tree Hollow after the clinic closed in May 2012, because St Helena Government felt there were too few patients to justify doctors’ time in attending it.

Mr Capes’s report of the 18 September executive council meeting said health staff conducted a review to see if the new system was effective. Some changes had been adopted after suggestions from patients, he said.

  • Wonderful! This must mean the residents there in Sandy Bay are pretty healthy and not needing a physician as much as the other districts! Keep up the great health Sandy Bay residents!
