In the Public Service of Trinidad and Tobago
Dr Colin Brian Furlonge
Dr Colin Furlonge served 34 years in the Public Service of Trinidad and Tobago, culminating with eight years as Medical Chief of Staff and three years as the nation’s Chief Medical Officer. In this expansive autobiography, he also provides a detailed expose as the “victim of a history of prejudicial treatment”. This treatment was directed by the Government of the day and guided by the Public Service Commission (PSC) – an institution created by the Constitution of a post-colonial Commonwealth Republic.
“… an eye-opener for employees of the Public Service and, more so, a must-read for medical doctors … The book depicts a son of the soil in his struggles, literally from boyhood, to achieve the ultimate position in the Health Service in Trinidad & Tobago.” Mr Lal Sawh CMT, FRCS, FACS, reviewer for the British Medical Journal
“Bouts of laughter, intrigue and contemplation, punctuated by bouts of anger and sadness; an information boiling pot highlighting a fearless approach to life and public service.” Dr Curtis Rambaran MD, FRCP, FAHA, former Consultant Physician, Guy’s and St Thomas’ Hospital, London
