The North West Regional Health Authority (NWRHA) says 20 CCTV cameras have been installed at strategic locations on the compound of the Port of Spain General Hospital.
A statement by the NWRHA says that as a one-month pilot initiative collaboratively undertaken by the NWRHA, the Ministry of Health and the Telecommunications Services of the Trinidad and Tobago (TSTT), the cameras will provide 24-hour surveillance of the hospital.
It says this will augment the security measures currently implemented.
