Intervention plans to bring back stability to health service delivery in North West already yielding results

Health MEC Dr. Magome Masike has told health stakeholders in the North West province that his department is working relentlessly to bring back stability to health service delivery.

MEC Masike briefed health stakeholders during the Provincial Health Consultative Forum held in Rustenburg on Friday.


The Forum was used to update health stakeholders about the state of health services, intervention progress, turnaround strategy and the financial performance of the department since it was placed under administration.


We have identified areas of intervention and begun to implement intervention plans in those identified areas, Masike said. 


“The areas of intervention include financial management particularly to deal with irregular expenditure and accruals.  Supply Chain Management which is characterised by irregular supply chain and material deviation from procurement practices have been identified as carrying fiscal risks which end up draining the resources of the Department,” he said.   


“We continue to work together with the Administrator to address the challenges faced by our employees at administration level in the Provincial Office and at the coal face of service delivery in the Districts,” he said.


Contract managed, particularly major contracts like Buthelezi EMS and Mediosa have also been identified as problem area that needs immediate intervention.


“We have revised the scope of work of private ambulance providers, Buthelezi EMS and High Care EMS.  The two service providers will now inter-facility transfers to allow state ambulances to focus on emergencies.  


“Effective from 1 June 2018, contracted private ambulance service providers only respond to cases as and when called to do so by authorized personnel within the Department. Private Service providers will only be utilized in the event when provincial state resources are over stretched,” Masike said.


The department cancelled the contract with the mobile clinic, Mediosa, which was procured without following the correct procurement procedures.
