Real News:Lewis calls for reopening of Five Islands Clinic and notes thatconstruction of primary school has not begun

MP Richard Lewis is calling for the satellite clinic in Five Islands tobe reopened.

Apparently, the clinic has been closed for quite some time, forcingthose in need of medical services to trek all the way to the GraysFarm facility.

The Five Islands clinic has been closed twice by the Antigua LabourParty Administration, Lewis notes.

And the MP says it is unfair to have sick persons travel that long adistance for medical care, given that the Five Islands facility wasconstructed to avoid such a situation.Therefore, Lewis says, residents are crying out for use of thecommunity healthcare facility.On another matter involving Five Islands, the Rural West MP pointsout that construction of the area’s new primary school is yet tocommence.

He observes that, due to the challenges the Government is facing,deadlines are not being met – but are being adjusted.As a result, Lewis is not optimistic that the time frame that was setfor the completion of the school will be met.

Further, the representative is expressing concern that the school isto be built in closer proximity to the Cooks Sanitary Landfill.
