  • Regulatory Body
    The General Nursing Council of Saint Lucia is a statutory body established under the Registration of Nurses and Midwives Ordinance No.12 of 1966.

    The Main purpose of the Ordinance and function of the Council is to:

    • Monitor and evaluate the training of nurses;
    • Regulate the practice and professional conduct of persons registered under the Ordinance;
    • Advise the Minister of Health on nursing matters. (accessed on 23.04.2009)

  • Health System
    Various departments within the MOH are responsible for the implementation of health programs such as health education, environmental health, preventive services, hospital and curative services. Primary health care services are mainly provided at the 34 health centers and two (2) district hospitals.

    In addition to routine general medicine clinics, special services are offered in obstetrics/gynecology, pediatrics, surgery, sexually transmitted infections and mental health. Special clinics and basic services are offered to diabetic and hypertensive clients at the primary care facilities. Secondary and specialized care and services are provided at the three general hospitals and the psychiatric hospital. Although clients may seek care at any facility, the administration and management of health facilities are based on the catchments population.

    Primary sources of funding for Government recurrent expenditure comprise taxes and user fees. The National Insurance Scheme makes an annual contribution to the consolidated fund to cover in-patient hospital expenses. The execution of many major capital projects has relied heavily on international aid.

    Many medical and dental practitioners work in both the public and private sector. Nurses have recently been employed in the hotel industry and in private home nursing care. (accessed on 23.04.2009)
