& Allied Workers’ Union has denounced the Department of Health’s Medical
Bureau for Occupational Diseases, following media reports exposing wasteful spending
A newspaper reported that a
Department health facility had buying appliances at highly inflated prices.
The union called for the
investigation into these allegations in a statement on Tuesday.
NEHAWU Media Liaison Officer
Sizwe Pamla explained that corruption has a very negative impact on healthcare
and the provisions of healthcare because it wastes valuable resources and costs
innocent people their lives.
There has to be strict control
measures and improved management systems.
“There has to be a reversal of
policies that have introduced healthy “tender-preneurism” in the health sector.”
