DA welcomes removal of Tembisa Hospital CEO

By Jack Bloom MPL, DA Gauteng Shadow MEC for Health:

I welcome the removal of Tembisa Hospital CEO Daisy Pekane from her post.

This should have happened a long time ago as I have seen for myself how bad conditions are at this hospital.

Poor management there has resulted in staff resignations and equipment failure.

I commend Gauteng Health MEC Qedani Mahlangu for taking this action.

She should also remove other non-performing CEOs from hospitals that are badly managed.

This is the best way to improve accountability to ensure quality treatment for patients.
