People in Gauteng receiving anti-retroviral treatment and any chronic medication will for the duration of the public service strike be able to collect their medication at any public health facility in the province.
The provincial health and social development MEC Qedani Mahlangu says except for Natalspruit and Germiston Hospitals, patients can go to any health facility to avoid complications related to not taking their medication.
Mahlangu says it is not true that some hospitals have run out of food, causing patients to have to be discharged.
