MEC for health, Dr Magome Masike will meet with all the CEO’s and Chairpersons of Hospital Boards at North West EMRS college in Orkney on Friday.
The department spokesperson, Tebogo Lekgethwane said: “The purpose of the meeting is to assess service delivery progress, identify challenges and chart way forward. Chairpersons of Hospital Boards are elected in terms of the National Health Act no 61 of 2003 to represent communities in their struggle to find their legitimate share in the governance and transformation of the health institutions and the health system generally.
“They will therefore be expected to present issues that communities have raised as matters of concern or which hampers health service delivery. Masike will also hear from them suggestions from communities on how best to improve health care service delivery in the province.”
Masike will also use the platform to update the meeting on how far the department is in resolving some of the known community complains like shortage of medication, shortage of ambulances, shortage of health professionals and others.
