The University Hospital of the West Indies, UHWI, has been directed to provide a more detailed review of the case involving Jalisa McGowan and to implement corrective actions.

This directive has come following reports submitted to the Ministry from the Andrews Memorial Hospital and UHWI.

The review of these reports has shown that there is a need for interventions to improve patient flow and to ensure prompt recognition and treatment of patients with severe manifestations of illnesses.

The Ministry also expressed regret at the passing of McGowan who died of asthma-related complications having visited the Hospital last month.
