The Ministry of Health has announced arrangements to effectively manage rescheduling and follow-up appointments occasioned by the unforeseen recall of Cuban Gynecologist Dr. Moises Lopez late last week.
According to a Government Information Service release referring to the ministry’s Chief Medical Officer, Dr. George Mitchell, arrangements are being made for antenatal patients who were being seen by Dr. Lopez for admission to be seen by the On-Call Consultant at the General Hospital.
The release quoted the CMO as saying that in addition, arrangements have been made for another Cuban Gyneacologist Dr. Martinez, to begin holding clinics on Tuesday mornings at the General Hospital Out-patient Clinic office.
Patients who were previously seen by Dr. Lopez will be diverted to other consultants until a replacement is sent.
Lopez was based at the General Hospital but conducted outreach clinics at Princess Royal Hospital in Carriacou and Princess Alice Hospital in Mirabeau, St. Andrew for more than a year.
The ministry says discussions were held with the Cuban Ambassador in Grenada, regarding the replacement of Lopez and that the process is likely to take about two weeks.
