The new Governor of Gibraltar, Vice Admiral Sir David Steel, paid a courtesy visit to St Bernard's Hospital and the Primary Care Centre this week.

After meeting the Minister for Health and Care, Paul Balban, Principal Secretary Evelyn Cervan and the Medical Director (Ag) Doctor Krish Rawal and other senior management staff, Sir David was briefed on some of the daily tasks at the Gibraltar Health Authority and how GHA staff had worked on making every possible preparation for the potential spread of Covid-19 on the Rock during the pandemic.

He said afterwards that he had been delighted to meet members of "Team GHA" and looked forward to seeing more in the future.

The Governor only took up his new post earlier this month and has now embarked upon familiarising himself with Gibraltar, its institutions and its people and business community. He succeeded Lieutenant General Edward Davis, whose term of office ended earlier this year.
