– Robeson BennPublic Works Minister Robeson BennMinister of Public Works Robeson Benn said that there was no formal discussion in Cabinet to ban any of this year’s anti- government calypso songs. According to him, after he made a personal objection about one of the calypsos, “the issue seemed to take on a life of its own.”The Minister said that he was returning home from a function when he heard a calypso which was in his view, “abusive, and libelous or rather slanderous, ” playing on the radio.  At that time, Wholesale NFL Jerseys China, Benn said, he was in the vicinity of the radio station. It was then, he said, he went into the radio station and requested a copy of the tape, “because I felt it had to be discussed in the government at the highest levels.”Benn said that he was told that he could not immediately get a copy of the song. Sometime after his arrival at National Communication Network (NCN) acting Chief Executive Officer, Michael Gordon, arrived.  The Minister said that Gordon contended that “approval was given from the Director of Culture or somebody in respect to playing, ” the music.Benn said that he promised to further discuss the matter, “and maybe talk to some lawyers.” He said that there was no uproar, “but I did make a personal opinion that I didn’t think it should be played through the government radio station.”Minister Benn however continued that he had no idea who authorized the banning of the calypsos as his only interest was to get a copy of the song he heard on the radio.Benn said he would have felt better if the songs were “played in other places which I am not associated with. I felt it should not have been played on the government radio station and I expressed that view and still hold that view.”“Usually when there is commentary about things, and it takes a certain life of its own it has to be based on some fact, and the persons who sing  and promote these things have to have some right or reason which propels them to make those comments which reside in some basis or fact.“If I had stood up in Parliament chambers and made some of those statements which were made, I might have been ruled out of order; I might have had to withdraw my statement on the grounds that they would have been non parliamentary, abusive.”Benn said that there is no evidence to support the statements made in the calypsos; they do not have any real basis in fact that could be proven in a court. “I would think that if a public and government sponsored activity is undertaken and certain statements are made, not in a satirical way but in an abusive way, that it should be based in some fact that can be properly contested in a court.”He further charged that if there is any good to come out of the matter, he would hope “that proper, appropriate vetting of calypsos would be done and at the standard of lyric and satire that one expects in calypsos and Soca.”The Minister emphasized his belief that he had the right as a citizen and a Minister to go down to the station and speak out against something that “Impacted me.”The Calypso community has however condemned the decision to ban the calypso. Veteran Calypsonian Geoffrey Phillips, aka ‘the Mighty Rebel’ and President of Calypso Association took offence over the recent banning of what was dubbed ‘anti- government’ calypso tunes.Rebel and calypsonians charged that nothing was degrading, vulgar or disrespecting about the tunes as the information revealed in the songs come from information in the public domain.  Many also charged that the purpose of the ban was to silence the reigning calypso king, Lester ‘De Professor’ Charles, but fear of retaliation from Linden, where he hails caused all the 2013 tunes to be barred.The calypsonians said that the act is, “Damaging to Mashramani, and damaging to calypso and the entire fraternity.” As such the calypso president has called an urgent meeting scheduled for tomorrow. All patrons and entertainers were asked to make a special effort to attend.

By Keeran DannyGeorgetown Public Hospital Corporation (GPHC) extends its services to about 400 patients daily, even though there are regional hospitals, health centres and health posts in various Regions. In fact, the hospital has a policy of not turning patients away, says Michael Khan, Chief Executive Officer of GPHC.GPHC’s CEO Michael KhanSituated in Georgetown, GPHC is the country’s national referral hospital that accepts patients from all 10 Administrative Regions. Patients, many times tagged as high risk, are provided healthcare that may not be available in other Regions.In addition, GPHC is the City’s hospital and provides services to residents in Georgetown and is the major hospital for Region Four. It is also the teaching and learning institution for medical students of the University of Guyana.According to Khan, many persons prefer to come to GPHC because they believe a better quality of care is provided.“My colleague CEOs in other public hospitals may want to deny that, Cheap MLB Jerseys China, but that’s the perception people out there have. GPHC never turns away anyone who comes to the emergency room or outpatient. Even if it takes a little while, everyone would be seen, ” he stressed.Without statistics at hand to definitively say which one of GPHC’s clinics is the busiest, he said the emergency room, medical outpatient, and medical clinics usually have a steady influx of patients daily.He noted that the GPHC’s human resources capacity to respond to this high number of patients is inadequate, but staffers are doing their best to ensure every patient is treated equally with quality care.“We will never have the adequate resources that you would need to run an optimum quality service and there is a difference between optimum and quality, ” the CEO said.“One department that is faced with the challenge of limited human resources is the Obstetrics and Gynecology. This department is always in need of midwives and those who are part of GPHC’s team are very dedicated and do the best they can. It is said that many of the hospitals are like that, but you work with what you have. We admire the staff we have; they go the extra mile. We have some staff that work beyond the hours of duty. We have many staffers that are not what you may call ‘clock watchers’.”Speaking on the issue of medication, Khan said the GPHC has a sufficient supply.“If medication is not available at the same time for patients they would be sourced from the bond and available the next day. The question is do we run out of medication to the detriment of patients, and the answer is no. And, that is what people must realize, ” he said.The “running out” of medication is not an inventory problem, Khan said, adding that persons need to understand certain factors may hinder the timely delivery.“We are located in a sense at the bottom of the world. Most medication is from India and China and it’s a lot of different things as to how long it takes to ship to our country. And you are caught between a rock and hard place as to how much you should have in stock and sometimes the intention of our supplier is to bring it in, but external forces may happen to delay it, ” Khan explained.According to the CEO, some medication may not be in storage because there may be untimely virus outbreaks and/or unpredictable natural disasters. For instance, Guyana may be faced with flood and GPHC does not have the relevant medication because the facility cannot predict things controlled by the forces of nature.“You may have the influenza and that does not come in the regular time like the flu season…What will you do? I can only say the Government is trying its best to provide medicine to its population.”According to Khan, GPHC has a 24/7 pharmacy that is stocked with relevant medication.“The system is not perfect but management is working to develop it. From August, the Ophthalmology department will have a pharmacy area, where patients would be given their medication. This will significantly reduce their waiting time.”
