Durban - The Democratic Alliance on Tuesday called on KwaZulu-Natal health MEC Sibongiseni Dhlomo to intervene after Inkosi Albert Luthuli Hospital staff threatened to strike.

“The grievances, which include allegations of corruption and complaints that senior staff are being employed without posts being advertised or interviews conducted, has threatened to bring the hospital to a standstill," said DA provincial health spokesperson John Steenhuisen in a statement.

Doctors, nurses and support staff had threatened a walk out, he said.

He called for Dhlomo to investigate allegations of corruption.

“Inkosi Albert Luthuli is the jewel in the crown of KwaZulu-Natal health services. Should the strike action go-ahead, there is a high risk that it could bring about industrial action at other hospitals,” said Steenhuisen.

He said the DA’s main concern was the many patients relying on the hospital's specialist medical attention who would be affected should the strike take place.
