This is the situation here for the longest while and nothing doing to help us….We don’t want a more serious situation to happen and no ambulance is around…” another resident lamented.Minister of Health Dr Leslie Ramsammy in an invited comment said that as soon as today, a new ambulance will be made available to the Kwakwani facility.According to the Minister, Regional Chairman of Region 10 (Upper Demerara/Berbice), Mr Mortimer Mingo, had only two days earlier informed him of the ambulance situation in Kwakwani. And it was within hours of their conversation, the Minister said that he was able to mobilise an ambulance for the facility.“He said that he can send down a driver to Georgetown on Monday to collect the ambulance…I had no prior knowledge of this situation so I was ready and willing to help the situation in recognition of the fact that Kwakwani has a legitimate problem,” the Minister asserted.However, it is the conviction of the Minister that some ambulances have not been able to keep up with some hospitals operations due to a combination of challenges including heavy workloads and improper maintenance.A similar situation, he said has been observed in Essequibo which currently has two ambulances that are “always breaking down.” As such the Minister said that he is prepared to help the Regions as far as possible.He related that in addition to what the Regions get in their budgets, his Ministry will also seek to procure some ambulances as well. Last year he revealed that the Ministry has furnished a number of Regions with ambulances including Regions Nine, Seven, Six and One.But in order to effectively address the situation, he said that the Ministry of Health will not only focus on training ambulance drivers this year but also determine how much is spent on these essential vehicles.“We can’t be spending a whole lot of money replacing ambulances all the time. So we have to examine closely where they are working and we may even have to get sturdier vehicles, especially in Region 10. Going from Kwakwani to Linden for example is not easy on the ambulance. So we really have to consider whether we will have to procure certain types of these vehicles for certain areas.”And according to the Minister, the cost for a normal ambulance is approximately $5M, which can effectively serve areas in the city. However the question facing the Ministry the Minister opined, is how much can actually be spent, as a sturdy ambulance can amount to about $20M.“There is always the debate about the spending. This is not politics and there is no right and wrong answers as there is strength in either side of such a debate. We have to decide whether it would be feasible to buy on sturdy ambulance or five that we will have to replace in a short period.”
