    Best of luck to this new Board of t he HSA, you will need it in trying to clear up the mess left by the last Board led by Pastor Al.

    My question and concern is this. Who among this new Board has a lick of experience in health care?

    As a Caymanian that depends on the health services efficiency to ensure that I have even basic health care and the fact that if we do not stem the massive loses that teh HSA create, I fear that I will be broke from the taxes that will have to be raised and die when I get sick because of appointments such as these that have no experience in the job they need to do.

    It does not help that the new Minister has already gone on record as saying that football is more important to him than health care for the people.

    Changing the Government appears to give us the same old thing. when will this foolishness end?
