Doctors at Baragwanath wait for pay

2011-01-31 18:08
Johannesburg - Newly-appointed doctors at Chris Hani Baragwanath Hospital in Soweto would receive their January pay on Thursday, the DA said.

This was according to a circular by hospital chief executive officer Johanna More, DA Gauteng health spokesperson Jack Bloom said in a statement on Monday.

Last week Gauteng health department spokesperson Simon Zwane said "about 40" doctors, medical interns and registrars would be paid late, because Chris Hani Baragwanath Hospital hadn't submitted appointment documents to the Gauteng Shared Service Centre on time.

According to Bloom "hundreds" of doctors would not be paid.

"The Gauteng health department has blamed the hospital for the late submission of documents, but the real problem is a department circular on November 30 last year that announced a moratorium on all new appointments unless approved by Dr Kamy Chetty, the head of department."

This was the reason why appointments were rejected by the GSSC, affecting a number of hospitals, Bloom said.

The hospital was not immediately available for comment.
