News Description

MEDICAL BRIEF The medical profession is becoming more outspoken in its criticisms of the National Health Insurance Bill among growing concerns over large-scale emigration. The SA Medical Association says doctors “strongly oppose” the legislation in its current format, with almost 40% saying they would emigrate if it was implemented, while in a Professional Provident Society survey 72% of all professionals said they would leave if the NHI is implemented in its current form, Rapport reports. PPS conducted the survey among more than 3,300 members for its written parliamentary submissions on the NHI Bill. PPS also isolated the responses of 2,905 medical professionals, noting that 58% of them were negative about the proposals. The biggest concerns were lack of capacity, infrastructure and fears about corruption.
