The public is asked to note that the Public Health Unit of the Ministry of Health and Social Development can be reached at the following numbers: 852-7781, 852-7783, or 852-7525. The Department of Waste Management and the Environmental Health Division can also be reached at 852-7500 and 852-7782.
This year's Nurses Week theme, "Nurses: The Balance of Mind, Body and Spirit" seeks to focus on, and address the health and wellbeing of our nurses. In my role as Minister for Health and Social Development, I have received many reports of the great works our nurses are doing at our new Peebles Hospital; and how well they have transitioned to the new facilities and adapted to the new technologies. Members of the community inform me almost regularly of the continuous improvement of nursing care in our health care system. And of course, my personal health care needs have given me first-hand experience and knowledge of the compassion, dedication, commitment, resilience, and professionalism of our nurses.
