Western Cape Health MEC Theuns Botha has
communicated with Health Minister Aaron Motsoaledi not to nationalise the
Last month Motsoaledi stated that the
Health Department were in the process of seeking control over the country’s largest
the hospitals, Groote Schuur and Tygerberg hospitals, are in Cape Town.
Botha said that the Western Cape
Province would not consent to this motion to nationalise.
“We believe that although the Minister has
a problem throughout the country with the state of hospitals, it is due to
political or bad management or bad control, it needs political intervention at those
levels of government” Botha said.
Botha said that a solution could not be shifted from one level
of government to another.
