Sustaining the hpcsa l.jpg

Sustaining the HPCSA

  • Favourable Audit Opinion

  • Net surplus from Operations – R402 980

  • Provisions for post-retirement medical benefits, leave and legal services costs

  • Revised HR benefits and conditions


Broader challenges l.jpg

Broader Challenges

  • Over-exerting power of private health care establishments over practitioners

  • Disintegrated regulatory processes between HPCSA and other structures like Council for Medical Schemes

  • Interference by Medical Aid Schemes on practitioners’ autonomy/ independence


Broader challenges27 l.jpg

Broader Challenges

  • Barriers to quality health-care access manifested through inadequate infrastructure, equipment and capacity [ Council sometimes forced to withdraw internship status for certain internship sites]

  • Barriers to education and training opportunities in health-care---stringent admission criteria which are sometimes indirectly discriminatory—notion of independence of institutions needs review in this regard
