The Women’s Legal Centre today said it was disappointed of several aspects of the budget speech which was delivered by Minister of Finance Provin Gordhan in Parliament on Wednesday. 

The WLC said the budget speech disappointed on the critical issue of national health insurance, and there was a lack of focus on safety of learners and teachers at schools. 

WLC Spokesperson Lisa Vetten said the Minister should also focus on supporting Non-Governmental Organisations, because they do a lot of work in community.

 Meanwhile the Democratic Nursing Organization of South Africa has welcomed the announcement by the Minister of Finance Pravin Gordhan that the White Paper on the National Health Insurance is completed and will be tabled soon. 

Denosa Spokesperson Sibongiseni Delihlazo said they believe that the quality of health in the country can only be released in an environment where they are enough health professionals and enough resources.

Delihlazo said the Minister should have touched on the shortage of staff at certain hospitals and now he just ignored that.

Delihlazo added that the nurses and doctors make the health system without those people the country would suffered.
