Dr. Melissa Diaz-Musa officially holds the post of Deputy Manager of the Central Health Region; however, she has also taken the additional responsibilities of the Manager of the Central Health Region. The past regional manager retired last year and Dr. Diaz has submitted her application to be promoted to regional manager.
Dr.Melissa Diaz, Deputy Manager, Central Health Region: “I’m the deputy regional manager here. The past regional manager retired last year in mid last year and I have taken on the responsibilities of the two desks so both regional and deputy regional manager. The responsibility basically I am technical lead and administratively for the region. We have 11 health facilities and recover San Pedro, the river valley and Caye Caulker as well.”
Reporter: Just for clarification that post, the two desks that you hold is it that you would then be given the title director of the central health region?
Dr.Melissa Diaz, Deputy Manager, Central Health Region: “It’s called regional manager so it’s not automatic. I’ve got to make a submission for the promotion to public service.”
Reporter: You’re doing so?
Dr.Melissa Diaz, Deputy Manager, Central Health Region: “Yes I have done that already.”
