Singh, Mr N to ask the Minister of Health

(a) Whether any plans are in place with regard to the reported 200 vacant posts for critically required doctors and specialists at Gauteng’s four academic hospitals, (b) what are the reasons for the vacancies and (c) what steps are being immediately implemented by his department to mitigate against such a breakdown in critical medical service delivery in Gauteng?


Honourable Member I am not sure which reported 200 vacant posts you are referring to. I discussed the matter with the MEC for Gauteng and she is also not sure where the figure of 200 is emerging from. Please help by specifying so that I can answer the question.
