A crisis is developing at the newly opened Zola Jabulani Hospital in Soweto as doctors there have not been paid.
The weekend of 24 – 25 May there were no doctors on duty and patients were diverted elsewhere.
The hospital has been dogged by controversy after long building delays, and then a rushed opening shortly before the elections.
It’s really a pity that management problems are crippling this new hospital which is needed to take the strain off the over-crowded Chris Hani Baragwanath Hospital.
New Health MEC Qedani Mahlangu must step in and ensure that all staff members are paid in time at this hospital.
