The government of Saint Lucia has terminated Doctor Stephen King’s three-year contract to look at the transformation of the local health sector, reliable sources have told the Times.
According to the sources, Doctor King’s assignment was to recommend ways to ‘move the health sector to a more modern and effective place.’
But the Times has been informed that the former Chief Medical Officer’s contract, signed in June last year, was terminated on May 31, 2017.
“The government decided to terminate the contract because they have enough information and can do it on their own,” one official explained.
“It was a policy decision,” the official told the Times.
Doctor King is reportedly about to produce a final exit report before the contract officially expires at the end of this month.
