Dominica’s health minister, Julius Timothy, is back home after he was airlifted to Martinique for treatment due to a mild stroke.

DNO understands Timothy returned to Dominica on Monday.

He was rushed to the Princess Margaret Hospital (PMH) on the afternoon of Wednesday, May 1 after he collapsed, reportedly from a stroke.

Timothy was taken to Martinique later that evening from the Canefield Airport for further treatment.

It is reported that the health minister is now at home recuperating.

      You are not the only one.I have said it before, DNO will loose its present popularity if that nonsence continues. It claims to be covered by a disclaimer,yet it gabages many comments, especially if they concern the Skerrit labor Government. The Admin. of DNO cannot be listening to between you and me, Angelo Alleyn Sunday show, Matt in the morning on Q95 and the Saturday night Animal Show.

    I do wish you recover and I am sorry that you had to experience this.
    However please help me to understand how it is that you were not treated in Dominica. Are you admitting that the health care system in Dominica were not able to treat you.
    This needs to change and atitudes towards your health care system needs to be improved.
    You were lucky and able to fly to where you could recieve treatment what about the rest of us.

    Hon. Timothy, welcome back home. A happy, speedy recovery. Take your time to recover. Do not be too anxious and stress yourself out over considering that you have to return to work. Let everything take its course. Just take one day at a time during your recuperation process.
    God’s blessing and healing!

  10. May 8, 2013

    People let us simply give thanks to God. Remember that the stroke which our Health Minister suffered was a mild one; at his age a severe stroke could have knocked him out completely.

    Let us thank God that He was not ready for Mr. Timothy–this could mean that He still has work to do through on behalf Dominica theough our Health Minister.

    Let us look forward for the best in our Dominica and for ourselves, than all of that negative complaining. This attitude in us is doing no good for no one–why can’t we acknowledge that and to stop it!

      Liz aren’t you and TIM school mates he went to SMA you CHS lol! and you talking about “at his ag?? LMAO this is not fet.
      DO you and fet like each other or not?

      • May 9, 2013

        @no jean beff May 8, 2013

        Sorry to disappoint you, but I did not attend SMA–and is that school not for the male species of young Dominicans–I don’t even know!

        They put me to teach in Dominica, long before I could even finish my teenage years–perhaps I was too smart to hang around with my teenage friends.

        And so from the year I set foot in Toronto I have been on the increase in learning, teaching, and evangelizing all at the same time.

        So what is your problem about talking about our Health Minister’s age? Why not speak your mind! Just so you know that I feel like 16, even if I have the “wisdom” of good old “King Solomon”! Lol

    I am indeed delighted to know you are doing better my friend Timo. As a friend and concerned citizen, I am not too sure I am happy you are back in Dominica knowing that you have not fully recovered, and Dominica’s leading hospital has nothing to assist you during your rehab and recovery. Anyways, as the old saying goes, home sweet home, and I am sure your family is happy to know you are home.
    I know you are a work wizard but at this time please take it easy and put Timothy and family first. Also, please use this to reconsider your decision to be in a Skerrit led administration, where you serve as minister of health. As we all know, health is the key component in the development of any nation, and in our case in DA, it is probably at its worse since we became a nation. That by itself is too stressful for you as you are a people’s person by nature, and no way will Skerrit will put you in a position to outshine him. So please resign and should you choose to re-contest next election, plz do so as an independent candidate. I will call you later when you start to feel better. Your friend in the US.

    It is sad that you fell sick, I wish u well, But I hope you use this experience to improve the conditions and facilities at all Hospitals in Dominica.
    You are in politics so sadly politics have to be brought in it too.

      I don’t think it was because of a matter of trust. PMH just doesn’t have the facilities for some major emergencies.

    Welcome home Julie. Take your rest and be good. God is great all the time. Never mind the nay sayers. They will never get sick because they support a particualr political party. Only those who support and work with PM Skerrit will get sick in today’s Dominica. We go see.

      It would be so sensible if you wished for a proper hospital, instead of the garbage that you are infecting the comments with.
      @View Point Brainless people like you are Dominica’s worse enemy.No wonder we are lagging behind almost all other Caribbean countries as a poor and backward nation.One good day you will stop wallowing in ignorance.
      Having said this it is heartening to see Tim Tim back home. Wish you a speedy recovery brother. Keep on praying.

      • View Point
        May 8, 2013

        Absolutely not. You miss read my point. You see everything that goes wrong in Dominica is blamed on Mr. Skerrit including the ill health of people around him. When Charlo ws sick, they celebrated. When Pierro and Rosie died they celebrated. When Chavez was sik and then died they celebrated. If you follow UWP rhetoric you will see the rejoice even at people’s sickness. That is where I was going, not wishing bad for Mr. Skerrit of his government and supporters. I am a “poto” supporter of PM Sklerrit. Whilst they celebrated Charlo’s illness and loss of voice, they fail to see that one of theirs (Senator)is losing his voice. Charlo has his voice back anyway , thanks God. Julie will get well too. We go see if sickness is a partisan thing. That is my point

    Tax payers won’t have to pay thousand of €Euros for medical attention in another Caribbean island. This needs to be addressed seriously!!!!!

  28. Positively Dominican
    May 7, 2013

    Good to know that he is back home. When he recuperates fully, I hope he will give some serious consideration to improving the health services in Dominica, so that tax payers won’t have to pay thousands of Euro$, when this funds could be use efficiently to improve the health care standards and provide the necessary medical and surgical technology in Dominica. Do some serious introspection and reflection

    Get well soon Mr Health Minister.

    Did e bring back a CT scan and MRI machine? Don’t crucify me he s minister of wealth isn’t he.
    Call me bad, insensitive whatever but isn’t it because of politicians heartlessness that they lie to you so easily.
    If the man is well then good for him and his family now what about Mr nobody who had a stroke in pichlen or Dubique or Roseau North.? This is not an unfair question.

    • Peeping Tom
      May 7, 2013

      Your question is not unfair, Teflon, It is simply out of place and in very poor taste under a media story that actually speaks positively of the health of another human.

      • mathematics
        May 7, 2013

        Truth is @Teflon has given some positive health ideas and the media story speaks positively of a man’s health. So when you add the two positives, u still end up with a positive.

        Oh yeh Peeping Tom I should ask the question at your convenience or when election campaign is on where all the empty promises are made.
        O you see our representatives making themselves available to answer the questions that are important to people. Instead they hide behind the blinds of Kairi and DBS or GIS.
        do you want us to ask the question after Mr nobody from pichlen or Dubique expire only because of the lack of basic equipment at our main hospital?
        Peeping Tom should we ask Timothy when he return from Miami or should we ask him on his way to the airport cause the people need an answer.
