Dr. Kenneth Darroux Minister of Health and Social Services broke the silence against illegal medical practices in Dominica.
His comments originated from a recent situation where a doctor was allegedly practicing illegally in Dominica
Darroux stated that the Dominica Medical Board is solely responsible for issuing license to practice medicine in Dominica except in the case of emergencies.
According to the Minister, according to the law the Dominica Medical Board would be responsible for the issuing of medical licenses however in the event of emergencies (such as natural disasters or state of emergencies), the Minister of Health has the authority to issue an emergency license.
Lack of such a license, would result in the practice being illegal and therefore the respective person or persons involved can be prosecuted.
