Hospital has doctor shortage

2017-09-22 06:00

A man, who did not want to be identified, blamed the Department of Health for not allocating sufficient doctors to the hospital, resulting in many patients not getting the help they desperately need.
The man said Kokstad residents do not have money to go to private hospitals or to hospitals outside Kokstad to seek help and appealed to government to provide more doctors for Kokstad.

An additional doctor is due to start there next month, and the hospital is in the process of recruiting more doctors.
