Health Department Promises Unplaced Intern Doctors Feedback This Week

Intern doctors on Sunday said they were fed-up with the slow pace at which their placement at healthcare facilities across the country was being finalised.

They are part of 288 qualified medical doctors who’re waiting for an announcement by the National Department of Health on when they can start with the mid-year intake of their internship or community service programmes.

The department said it was still consulting with Treasury and provincial health departments on the funding of these posts and would provide feedback this week.

The department said it would give an update on the meeting with Treasury by latest Wednesday.
