Monday 29th January, 2018 – The health minister has revealed a troubling situation at ClareVue Psychiatric Hospital, where some patients are being targeted and their drug habits fed by members of the public.
The situation came to light when Minister Molwyn Joseph met with media practitioners last week.
Plans are now being put in place for the construction of a new fence that will replace the chain link barrier in order to prevent such occurrences. Permanent Secretary Joan Carrott explained discussions are being held to determine the suitable material for construction of the fence. She said they have ruled out the use of galvanize, since the material can become a hazard, especially during the hurricanes.
