Suddie Public Hospital out of insulin, syringe supplies

first_imgScores of diabetic patients in Region Two (Pomeroon-Supenaam) have been complaining of having to incur additional expenses to purchase insulin medication and also the syringes for them to receive their treatment at the Suddie Public Hospital.The State-run medical facility is without insulin injections and syringes since late January, and although requests were made for additional supplies, there still remains a shortage.According to patients, they are given prescriptions to purchase the insulin and syringes and to return to have doctors administer same.This is causing great inconvenience, as many patients cannot afford to purchase the medication.Recently, several persons were admitted to the Hospital for hypertension and there is very little that medical practitioners can do. Pensioners are predominately affected, since they cannot afford to purchase the medication needed.“It seem as if we have to reserve to alternative measures of eating cucumber to lower we pressure, I have been never out of tablets or injections… it’s frustrating, I cannot afford this, my pension has to maintain me and I can’t ask my children,” a poor pensioner from Marias Lodge related.Residents are therefore calling on Public Health Minister, Dr George Norton to immediately intervene, since the situation had become extremely burdensome.Guyana Times was also made to understand that the Hospital is in need of additional medical supplies. A visit to the Suddie Public Hospital Pharmacy on Thursday revealed that essential medications are in short supply.last_img read more

Council to hear report Tuesday about possible community run health clinic

first_imgAccording to Council, one of the main reasons physician recruitment and retention is said to be such a challenge for Fort St. John is issues surrounding overhead and cost of operation for a family practice. The challenges along with the Physician Compensation model has led to a public clinic being proposed.A public clinic would provide for a fully staffed medical office where physicians can work using a salary compensation model. Under this system the physician would not be required to run the facility as a business, unlike the current clinics in Fort St. John, with the exception of the unattached medical clinic.Council will hear on Tuesday if a public clinic is viable in Fort St. John.  The report was commissioned at a cost of $52,600.- Advertisement –last_img read more

Championship round-up: Watford close gap on summit as promotion rivals falter

first_img1 Watford striker Matej Vydra scored twice as the Hornets moved to within three points of the Championship summit with a stunning 3-2 comeback victory against Leeds United at Elland Road.The Hornets fell behind early when Billy Sharp pounced after a mix up between Ikechi Anya and Heurelho Gomes to add his fourth goal of the season.Leeds then went further ahead with barely 20 minutes played after Rodolph Austin impeccably executed a half-volley over the hapless Gomes from 30 yards.The Hornets, however, crucially responded just before half time when captain Troy Deeney latched onto Matej Vydra’s through ball to notch his second goal in a week.Deeney then returned the favour for strike partner Vydra who struck at the back post to level proceedings just before the hour mark.Vydra, in the absence of in-form striker Odion Ighalo, had the final say with a powerful finish in the final ten minutes to propel the visitors up to third and ensure their fifth victory in six league games.In fact, Watford were the only team in the Championship top seven to win as leaders Derby County fell to a surprise 2-0 defeat to Fulham at Craven Cottage.Steve McClaren’s side remain two points clear at the top of the table, but were lacklustre against a side they had already scored ten goals against in two games previously this season, with goals from Bulgarian centre back Nikolay Bodurov and Cauley Woodrow sealing the upset.Second placed Middlesbrough also suffered a surprise defeat as Sheffield Wednesday struck twice – through Will Keane and Atdhe Nuhiu from the penalty spot – in two second-half minutes to grab a 2-0 victory at Hillsborough.Former Brentford striker Clayton Donaldson came back to haunt the club he scored 46 times for as Birmingham City dented the Bees play-off hopes with a 1-0 win at St Andrews.Donaldson forced Brenford defender James Tarkowski into an own goal just before half time and, despite Stephen Gleeson’s late sending off, Birmingham held on for their first win in nine games.Bakary Sako’s third goal in a week was enough for Wolves as their 1-0 win at Cardiff City closed the gap on the play-offs to just two points.Nottingham Forest remain unbeaten under new manager Dougie Freedman after an impressive 3-0 victory over Reading at the Madejski.Stunning second half goals from Ben Osborn, Matty Fryatt and Gary Gardner ensured a league double over the Royals and kept Forest’s slim play-off hopes alive.At the other end of the table, Kari Arnason struck late on as Rotherham came from a goal down to beat relegation rivals Millwall 2-1 and move six points clear of their opponents.And in the other big relegation encounter, Wigan Athletic increased their survival chances as they comfortably beat basement side Blackpool 3-1 at Bloomfield Road.Goals from Kim Bo-Kjung, on-loan defender Harry Maguire and James McClean ensured an easy win for the Latics and, despite a late Gary Madine consolation, the three points kept Malky Mckay’s side within touching distance of their rivals.Former Celtic striker Tony Watt scored twice to ruin Chris Powell’s return to his former side as Charlton beat Huddersfield 3-0 at the Valley.Meanwhile, highly-rated youngster Zach Clough scored his fifth goal in five league starts as Bolton beat relegation rivals Brighton 1-0 at the Macron Stadium.Elsewhere, in a game that was delayed by half an hour after a serious car crash, Bournemouth remain fourth after they were held to a 0-0 draw at home to Blackburn Rovers, extending the Cherries’ winless run to five games.Championship results in full:Birmingham 1 – 0 BrentfordBlackpool 1 – 3 WiganBolton 1 – 0 BrightonBournemouth 0 – 0 BlackburnCardiff City 0 – 1 WolvesCharlton 3 – 0 HuddersfieldFulham 2 – 0 DerbyLeeds 2 – 3 WatfordReading 0 – 3 Nottingham ForestRotherham 2 – 1 MillwallSheffield Wednesday 2 – 0 Middlesbrough Matej Vydra last_img read more

Quique Sanchez Flores exit is ‘CRAZY’ – Watford captain Troy Deeney

first_img1 Quique Sanchez Flores oversaw his last game as Watford manager on Sunday Watford captain Troy Deeney has described the decision to let head coach Quique Sanchez Flores leave the club as ‘crazy’.The Hornets secured a second season in the Premier League by finishing well clear of the drop zone in an impressive 13th place – their highest top-flight placing in 29 years.But the Spaniard has paid the price for a torrid second half of the campaign, and will leave the club having played their final game of the season.The Hornets, promoted from the Championship last season, also reached the FA Cup semi-finals in Sanchez Flores’ first season in charge.And Deeney believes the 51-year-old was harshly treated by the club, who will now begin their search for a new permanent boss.“His time here has been a success,” the striker told several national newspapers.“He’s brought me on a lot as a player. I have nothing but gratitude. We’ve had 16 new players and he’s made it seem effortless.“Sunderland have been in the bottom three and managed to stay up, and Sam Allardyce is being hailed as a great manager, which he is, for keeping them up.“But we’ve seemingly coasted through this season and our gaffer’s been sacked. It’s one of those crazy ones.”last_img read more

Chinese Super League club release statement regarding move for Chelsea star

first_img Diego Costa: Will the striker stay at Chelsea this summer? Tianjin Quanjian have distanced themselves from reports a deal to sign Chelsea striker Diego Costa is near.The Chinese Super League club have been linked with a mega-money move for the 28-year-old striker, who has two more years remaining on his Chelsea contract.Costa scored 20 goals on his way to winning a second Premier League title with Chelsea since joining from Atletico Madrid for £32million in July 2014.He has also been linked with a return to Atletico. He admitted previously to agitating for a return to Madrid before saying he was happy at Chelsea.A statement on Tianjin’s official website said: “During the past six months the club has not communicated with Diego Costa or his agent regarding his transfer to Tianjin Quanjian.”Costa has been linked with a £76m move but Tianjin insisted such a deal would be contrary to their strategy.“We have no intention of becoming involved in any unhealthy competition and, consequently, paying a premium price,” they said. 1last_img read more

U.S. Supreme Court to hear terror tribunal case

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWalnut’s Malik Khouzam voted Southern California Boys Athlete of the Week “To have the court step in and say we want to review the president’s decisions as he’s acting as commander in chief, that’s significant,” said Scott Silliman, a Duke University law professor and former Air Force attorney. New Chief Justice John Roberts took himself out of the case because as an appeals court judge he held that the government could put Salim Ahmed Hamdan on trial before a military commission. If Bush nominee Samuel Alito is confirmed, he could be a pivotal figure when the case is argued. Announcement of the court’s move came shortly after President George W. Bush, asked about reports of secret U.S. prisons in Eastern Europe for terrorism suspects, declared anew that his administration does not torture anyone. “There’s an enemy that lurks and plots and plans and wants to hurt America again,” Bush said during a news conference in Panama City with President Martin Torrijos. “So you bet we will aggressively pursue them but we will do so under the law.” “Anything we do to that end in this effort, any activity we conduct, is within the law. We do not torture,” he said. Separately, the Pentagon said Monday that it had charged five more terror suspects detained at Guantanamo Bay with offenses and that they would face trial by a military tribunal. That brings to nine the number of detainees there who have been charged with criminal offenses. There are about 500 detainees there in all. Hamdan, a Yemeni who was captured in Afghanistan in November 2001, denies conspiring to engage in acts of terrorism and denies he was a member of al-Qaida. He has been charged with conspiracy to commit war crimes, murder and terrorism. The Bush administration argued that national security was at stake. “The military proceedings involve enforcement of the laws of war against an enemy force targeting civilians for mass death,” Solicitor General Paul Clement wrote in a filing. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! WASHINGTON – The Supreme Court is giving no free passes to the commander in chief. Pressed by the Bush administration to stay out of a wartime powers case, the court jumped in anyway. The justices will decide whether the president overstepped his authority by ordering military tribunals for terror suspects held at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, resurrecting a type of trial last used during World War II. The case the justices will hear next spring involves Osama bin Laden’s former driver. The court’s intervention is troubling news for the White House, which has been battered by criticism of its treatment of detainees and was rebuked by the high court last year for holding enemy combatants in legal limbo. last_img read more
