This morning the Democratic Alliance launched the DA’s new health Policy. The policy allows for private pharmacy’s to dispense medication for state patients. This means that patients, who have received prescriptions for medication from state hospitals, will be allowed to go to a pharmacy of their choice to collect their medication.

Democratic Alliance Spokesperson for Health, Mike Waters says that this will alleviate people having to take a days leave to go to public hospitals for the necessary medication and will cut down on transport as well.

“We’ve also proposed that the management of all hospitals put up a tender and that people with appropriate skills be appointed as managers, where by they have the power to run these hospitals,” said Waters.
