KWAZULU-Natal Health MEC Nomagugu Simelane-Zulu says the brand new R50 million oncology machine unveiled at Grey’s Hospital on Tuesday is proof yet again that government is serious about providing good quality healthcare for all, regardless of social status, or whether a person has medical aid or not.

The recent commissioning of the new, second linear accelerator has injected renewed vigour and excitement at Grey’s Hospital, strengthening the tertiary hospital’s capacity to provide better and faster oncology services for scores of people who come from Umgungundlovu, Umzinyathi, Uthukela, Amajuba and Harry Gwala districts.

With two machines, the hospital will now be able to treat up to 75 cancer patients each day, up from 45 with the old single machine.
