The country could be facing a nation-wide strike at state hospitals on Monday.

State doctors meeting at hospitals throughout the country are to analyze government’s latest wage offer.

The South African Medical Association says the offer is just an incorporation of existing benefits into a salary, which is being portrayed as an increase.

It is reported that doctors at two of Cape Town’s main hospitals, Groote Schuur and Tygerberg, walked out today, leaving only emergency services to deal with patients.
