The ceremony was attended by members of the RSCNPF’s High Command; the Director of Public Health Institutions, Dr. Jenson Morton; and a representative from the Urban Development Corporation in the person of Pearline Tross.
During his brief remarks, Dr. Morton expressed his gratitude and appreciation on behalf of the Ministry of Health as this year’s batch of trainees is inclusive of nine (9) orderlies from the Joseph N.
