The Health Minister Dr Fenton Ferguson says in another week, the demand will ease on the Princess Margaret Hospital with the opening of the Hampton Court Centre of Excellence in St Thomas.

Yesterday, Ferguson visited the new facility with dental practitioners from the USA-based charity group, ‘Great Shape’.

He says the Hampton Court facility which will deal mainly with non-communicable diseases is a direct strategy of the government.

Yesterday, the Great Shape charity was in St Thomas for the first time providing free dental care for students of the Duckenfield Primary School.

The group was developed some 25 years ago following hurricane Gilbert.
