Montwedi, Mr Mk to ask the Minister of Health
With reference to the Mokgareng Clinic in Taung in the North West that has been without generic medications for a while now and does not even have a glucometer to assist diabetic patients, by what date does he intend to deliver basic resources and equipment to the specified clinic?
According to the North West Provincial Department of Health, Mokgareng Clinic has never been without medicines.
The Clinic has enough glucometers to assist diabetic patients. There may be times when one glucometer may be without batteries and because there is enough of them, the staff is able to continue with the work while the dead batteries of one glucometer are being replaced. The National Department of Health, working with the Provincial Department and the District will continue to monitor medicine as well as equipment availability in all facilities including for Mokgareng Clinic.
