Doctors from Cape Town’s Groote Schuur Hospital staged a walkout this afternoon, leaving all day hospitals empty and only emergency services elsewhere.

It is reported that doctors at the hospital were locked in a meeting all afternoon, deciding whether to join their peers in KwaZulu-Natal.

The strike is not sanctioned by the South African Medical Association, which has been negotiating with the government over salary increases for medical professionals.

Meanwhile the Congress of SA Trade Unions welcomed the pay offer announced by Health Minister Aaron Motsoaledi on Wednesday, some doctors are unhappy with the salaries offered.
