Parish Council bids farewell to Public Health doctor

                                                                                      Prepare! Prepare! Prepare! Doc warns
Members of the Hanover Parish Council Public Health and Sanitation Committee bade farewell to Dr. Marcia Johnson-Campbell, Medical Officer (Health), at their general meeting, on Thursday, June 12.
Following her customary report on public health matters, Dr. Johnson-Campbell announced to her audience comprised of Councillors, heads of departments and agencies and members of the public that the meeting would be her last, since she has been transferred to St. James.
In her parting shot, Dr. Johnson-Campbell encouraged stakeholders to recommit to making a priority disaster management “because it is our level or preparedness that will allow us to respond efficiently through collaboration and shared resources, especially in this time of financial constraints.”
Council members were in fulsome praise of Dr. Johnson-Campbell, whom Mayor Shernet Haughton described “approachable and cooperative at all times.”
Councillor Wynter McIntosh of the Chester Castle division concurred and added that she ‘certainly will be missed’ by the Council. He added that some meetings had fallen out because of a false sense of security.
In his memoir Councillor Neville Clare (Lucea division) said the parish of Hanover was ‘the better for her brief stint which for three years had passed rather quickly.’
Hopewell Councillor, Devon Brown said Dr. Johnson-Campbell ‘seemed to have settled rather nicely,’ only to be snatched away so soon.
