Ozpharmer,

You are painting a picture of doom and gloom. Doctors have been leaving SA for years now for various reasons some of the reasoning has to do with the fact that doctors are in high demand around the globe and not because of NHI. That is why 1 & 3 doctors in the USA are immigrants for example. Dubai and other nations are in desperate need of medical professionals and will pay top dollar for services. Nurses and equipment are in higher demand! NHI amongst other factors just makes a decision easier for those that want to stay or go.

The universal healthcare plan hasn't even started yet and will be effective in 2026. Why not give the system a chance before you criticize or bury it?

The problem with the previous system was inequality between the both private and public sectors. The impoverished simply weren't getting quality care and in the private sector there was still an element of racism and obscense charges that weren't being regulated. The NHI aims to curb these realities.

People can still pay for private services. The working class pretty much pays for NHI and to balance this out more people need to be working. Hopefully, NHI will give incentives for doctors to expand services specifically in underserved communities.
