The South East Regional Health Authority (SERHA) has announced that the Denham Town Health Centre in the violence-ravaged west Kingston community will reopen tomorrow at 8 a.m.

The health centre was closed temporarily last Wednesday, July 22, in light of what SERHA said was the violence that was affecting the community.

"We have met with the stakeholders, including the police, and we are now comfortable that the environment is safe for us to resume offering health services," said Dr Andrei Cooke, SERHA board chairman.

"The staff that was redeployed to the Edgerton Chin Loy and Comprehensive Health Centres have been advised to report to the Denham Town Health Centre on Monday morning," added Cooke.
