News Description

ENCA The Portfolio Committee on Health has concluded its first round of public hearings on National Health Insurance in Mpumalanga. The bill was introduced two months ago and is currently going through a public participation phase. Residents are raising concerns over the ill state of public health care facilities in the province. "That province is still struggling in terms of one. They don't have a hospital that is as big as some of the central hospitals and sometimes it takes a bit longer, waiting time for patients to actually access services. Number two is ambulances, there has actually been an overwhelming cry about the shortage of ambulances in and around the area", said Health Portfolio Committee chairperson, Sibongiseni Dhlomo. The committee is expected to host public hearings in Northern Cape next.
