Ah, the breeze of change is still a-blowing it seems. Word crossing my desk is that over FIFTY persons from the Queen Elizabeth Hospital have resigned today January 16th, a day after election results showed the Democratic Labour Party (DLP) made a crushing and slightly embarrassing defeat over the Barbados Labour Party (BLP- who had 3 consecutive wins over the DLP).
Also of note is apparently, the Barbados Investment Development Corporation (BIDC) has been vacant since last week. Though I am still researching these two matters I think it’s pretty safe to say it’s true.
Given the fact that the QEH as well as the BIDC are both corporations, at the changing of Government, members of these bodies have to resign. Which is unfortunate for the QEH people in particular given the fact that it has been roughly a year since it was transfered to corporation style governance. That would of course only affect Administrative not Medical Staff. Not that these people shall walk away with their long arms swinging, no no no! Rest assured they have some change to tide them over for a while.
Ah well… when wind blows dust is stirred, all that’s important will come when the dust eventually settles.
