T&T Health Minister drops patients after ultimatum from Kamla

(Trinidad Express) Health Minister Dr Fuad Khan decided on Monday night to give up his private medical practice, hours after he was given an ultimatum by Prime Minister Kamla Persad-Bissessar to choose between it and his ministerial position.

Speaking earlier in the day with reporters in South Trinidad, Persad-Bissessar said she had told Khan, a urologist, that not only was such behaviour inappropriate, but “it was untenable”.

In a release last night, Khan, the MP for San Juan/Barataria, stated his decision to cease his private medical practice.
