Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Health and Social Services Letitia Lestrade-Wyke has stressed the importance of nurses and other health and social workers to the health sector.
She says as a nurse, and part of the Dominica Nurses Association she is committed to the provision of proper health services for all.
Members of the Dominica Nurses Association held protest action last week to protest what they say are unsatisfactory work conditions.
She stated that each person in the sector whether medical or assistance, are just as important as another person. Wyke continued that her role as the permanent secretary is not only to look out for nurses but for each person involved in the Ministry of Health, whether they play a medical role or not.
