Basseterre, St Kitts and Nevis: Dr Terrance Drew, Prime Minister of the Twin-Island Federation of St Kitts and Nevis, paid an official visit to the Joseph N France General Hospital (JNF Hospital). During his visit, PM interacted with the Emergency Medical Technicians.

The Technicians, who met with the Prime Minister, have just started the second phase of their EMS training course. PM Drew encouraged them and asked them to work with full dedication.

The update about this visit was shared through the official social media of the Prime Minister of St Kitts and Nevis. The official post by Dr Drew read, “Decided to stop by JNF this morning to visit our Emergency Medical Technicians who began the second phase of the EMS training course earlier this week, to share a few words of encouragement.”

PM Terrance Drew, who also serves as the Minister of Health of the nation, further proudly stated that the young technicians would be able to improve and enhance their skills. He also mentioned that EMS training would teach about some of the life-saving techniques before the patient is admitted to the hospital.

The social media update by the minister stated, “The EMTs are gaining important skills training to improve their CPR skills, enhance their patient evacuation skills from the scene of an accident or injury, and to teach life-saving techniques before getting the patient to the hospital.”

The training session will be conducted by Matthew Rolph, and regarding this, the students expressed gratitude as well as pleasure towards the government of St Kitts and Nevis. Prime Minister Dr Drew stated, “They are very excited about this course of training conducted by Matthew Rolph, a former paramedic from the United Kingdom and founder of EMS International.”

As per the official update, this next step of training will upgrade the basic and intermediate-level EMTs to trained paramedics.

Prime Minister Dr Terrance Drew has always actively visited the JNF Hospital to survey the ongoing operations in the medical institute. Earlier, in the month of May, he announced that around 15 dialysis machines would be installed in the hospital for smooth functioning in the institute.

Further, he stated that these machines would be operated by three medical specialists who were appointed in a few days.
