Thembekwayo, Dr S to ask the Minister of Health
What (a) has he found caused the fire at the Charlotte Maxeke Johannesburg Academic Hospital, (b) were the reasons that the response to the fire was so slow, which led to so much damage to the specified hospital and (c) steps has his department taken since the fire, in order to ensure that services are still provided to persons who depended on the hospital?
The National Department of Health is still awaiting information from the Gauteng Provincial Department of Health, to enable the Minister to respond to this question. The response will be provided to Parliament as soon as information has been received from the Provincial Department of Health.
