“Please allow me to convey my gratitude to your staff who has provided my medical care over the past 2 years.
I’m fully aware of how the media are sometimes quick to remind us of the shortcomings in the services provided by many government agencies and private sectors; nevertheless, I am extremely pleased and grateful to be able to confirm that reports such as these were not indicative of the services I received in both Grand Turk and Providenciales.
I want to offer my heartfelt thanks to them and many others whose work is driving innovation and improving the lives of our people in the Turks and Caicos Islands.
From the strong network of specialists and clinicians collaborating in both Grand Turk and Providenciales, to the organizations and InterHealth Canada who play such an important role in bringing new discoveries from labs to patients’ bedsides; to the advocates, government representatives and donors who pave the way for expanding the knowledge of medicine. They have come a long way since I left the Turks and Caicos Islands over 35 years ago. I have been in the care of many Doctors and Specialist abroad and there is not much comparison to the great service I have received here. Thank you for the unwavering dedication, the talents, skills and compassion that brings hope to our people and families. I am truly grateful for your enduring commitment to serve our communities.
Furthermore, it is amazing to see the efficiency and patience that takes place within the hospital walls. A special thanks to internist Dr. Ravindra for his positive engagement and thoroughness with me.
On a side note, I realize that in the Turks and Caicos Islands we have limited skills in this area of expertise; however, to ensure we have the needed maturity levels and tenure, the selection process should be vetted a bit more carefully when it comes to primary Doctors.
I would be grateful if this letter could be forwarded to the relevant departments as I know it is always good to receive positive feedback when carrying out a difficult and challenging role.”
