Former Prime Minister Bruce Golding has been hospitalised for what his family says is a “recurring health condition”.

The former Prime Minister was admitted to the Tony Thwaites Wing of the University Hospital on of the West Indies on Thursday and is said to be under observation.

His daughter, senator Sherine Golding Campbell, did not disclose the nature of his illness, but said he “has suffered” with it “for some time”.

In a statement issued Thursday night, Senator Golding Campbell said that “it is expected that he will be home soon once his health indicators are satisfactory to his physician”.

“My father and family thank you for your expressions of support and well wishes for his speedy recovery,” Senator Golding Campbell said.

Golding, 73, was hospitalised last January after complaining of nausea.
