The Western Cape Health Department is to investigate allegations of emergency medical workers getting financial bonuses.

It is believed that EMS workers are receiving money from undertakers, in exchange for information on accidents and deaths.

The probe, which focuses, on EMS workers moonlighting has surfaced after a Parow family discovered that their son's body had been lying in a funeral parlour for more than five months.

Department spokesperson Faiza Steyn says that, “an investigation is currently under way with EMS just being one of the components of the investigation”.

She added that if anything were found during the investigation, disciplinary action would be taken against the guilty parties.

According to reports there have been numerous emergency medical workers moonlighting as undertakers.
