CDAP Pharmacy Services now available at the Couva Medical and Multi-Training Facility
Members of the public now have a new location to collect their CDAP medication - the Pharmacy at the Couva Medical and Multi-Training Facility (CMMF). Situated just off the Sir Solomon Hochoy Highway, this CDAP Pharmacy location is part of the first phase of the operationalisation of the CMMF.
Pharmacy Services at the CMMF have also been extended to include Patient Medication Therapy Management. Patients will have the opportunity to receive one-on-one counselling with specialists who will explain the contents of CDAP prescriptions and discuss ways to ensure that patients comply with their medication regime. All members of the public are invited to take advantage of this walk-in service, Monday to Friday from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm.
The CMMF is positioned to be a ‘game changer’ in the public health arena. Medical staff will operate in a modern facility with the latest technology and patients will receive cutting-edge health care in a comfortable environment.
Apart from the Pharmacy Services, referred patients will receive the following diagnostic imaging services at the CMMF through the public health system:
- Computerized Tomography (CT) Imaging;
- Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI);
- Ultra Sound and
Patients will receive a digital copy of their diagnostic imaging reports. Additionally, a Picture Archiving and Communication System (PACS) has been implemented to facilitate easy digital recording, retrieval and transfer of diagnostic imaging scans/records. Patients must be referred through the public health system to access the diagnostic imaging services at the CMMF.
The North Central Regional Health Authority (NCRHA) will be the initial operator for these services and CMMF will be managed by the CMMF Limited.
The Government of Trinidad and Tobago is delivering on its commitment to operationalise the CMMF, months ahead of the promised timeframe. This initiative is just one element of the overall revolution in health, which is founded on the provision of the best, most advanced health care services to the population.
