A new Tobago Regional Health Authority Board is already being asked to deal immediately with a number of tasks. 

The new Board received their instruments of appointment from the Health Secretary Claudia Groome Duke during a short ceremony at the Tobago House of Assembly's Administrative Complex on Wednesday.

The 10-member Board is being chaired by former THA Tourism and Transportation Secretary Oswald Williams.

"Of course it is my intention to ensure that I harness these skills, these competencies, these experience to assist me in the process of charting the course over the next couple years."

He said he has the task of further developing the sector with a team he described as more than capable.

THA Health Secretary Claudia Groome-Duke outlined a number of matters the new Board must treat with immediately.

"The recruitment and appointment of a Chief Executive Officer, a freeze on all new employment in all areas of recruitment until the comprehensive review of the human resource and finance section is completed, evaluating contracts of all persons in the top management structure with an HR audit that will enable the Board to make informed decisions."

Secretary Groome-Duke assured that a new CEO would be appointed within the next six months. She also ordered the Board to de-link the hospital kitchen from the cafeteria and asked of the members to respect each other and to be timely with status updates on all matters under the TRHA.
