Rowley, who was hospitalised on Friday after experiencing “discomfort," underwent two heart procedures yesterday – an angiogram and an angioplasty.

A brief statement from the Office of the Prime Minister  today confirmed that he is now at home resting comfortably, after being cleared by doctors.

“The Office of the Prime Minister is pleased to advise that Prime Minister, Dr the Hon.

Meanwhile, West Shore has launched an investigation into an apparent breach of patient confidentiality after a technician posted information on social media about the prime minister’s condition while at the facility.

The People’s National Movement (PNM) has acknowledged the announcement of the probe, but said it will await the result of the investigation.
