Over 800 Bara doctors, nurses face unemployment

South Africa

Johannesburg – More than 800 doctors and nurses at Chris Hani Baragwanath Hospital will be jobless by the end of March.

They were hired contractually by the Gauteng Department of Health to specifically assist with Covid-19 patients.

But the department says it does not have the money to keep them on.

Those picketing say the hospital is already short-staffed and under-resourced and getting rid of these doctors will put a burden on the permanent staff.
