IMPROVEMENTS IN HEALTH AND SOCIAL WELFARE


 


The Health and Social Welfare Directorate has recently seen the return of three medical staff and a new addition to their medical team.


 


Arriving last week was Dr Alex Wonner, Locum Surgeon who is on Island to fill the gap created by the departure of Dr Sulaiman on completion of his contract. Recruitment for Dr Sulaiman’s successor is currently in process and Dr Wonner will remain on St Helena until the post is filled permanently.


 


Professor Kathy Rowe, Nurse Education Coordinator, is also on Island to assess progress of the Student Nurses and review training needs for all nursing staff for the forthcoming year.


 


Eileen O’Rourke, Clinical Nurse Manager, has returned and will continue to work with the Acute and Community Health Manager, Wendy Henry, on developments in nursing services in all areas of the Directorate, with the main focus being on the acute care environment.


 


 


The Food and Water Laboratory also welcomed back Gift Sibanda, Senior Food Microbiologist, who will continue to ensure that the Lab meets the required standards to maintain its accreditation. The Laboratory will also see the departure for training this week of Helena Stevens, Quality Manager. Helena will be attending a four day Combined Laboratory Management Course in the UK with the United Kingdom Accreditation Service from 12 -15 February. Following the course, Helena will then be placed on an attachment with the Food and Environment Research Agency from 18 February – 15 March. The objectives of both the course and attachment are to help Helena fulfill her role as Quality Manager for the Food and Water Laboratory and gain the required experience.
