DENOSA Gauteng calls on all nurses to join the DENOSA and NEHAWU national march in honour of the nurse who died after collapsing at SANC and all nurses who died in the line of duty
17 February 2017
The Democratic Nursing Organisation of South Africa (DENOSA) in Gauteng calls on all nurses in the province to join the DENOSA and NEHAWU national march on the 22nd of February 2017 in Pretoria in honour of the nurse who died this year after collapsing at SANC because of the poor services offered there.
We also call on all the nurses to join the march in honour of all the nurses who died in the line of duty: the nurse murdered in Limpopo by a patient, the nurses attacked by the community in Tembisa and all health facilities in the country.
DENOSA and NEHAWU will be marching to National Department of Health, South African Nursing Council (SANC), Treasury and Department of Public Service and Administration (DPSA).
We call on all nurses who are tired of poor and unsafe working conditions to join the DENOSA national march to put an end to these challenges. It is in the interest of all nurses to come out in unity and demonstrate to the government that we are not happy with the status quo.
We also call on South Africans who are tired of poor health care and long queues in public health facilities to join the DENOSA national march to address these issues because it is DENOSA’s interest to see public facilities improve the quality of health care provided to South Africans. DENOSA stands opposed to poor health care and long queues in health facilities.
DENOSA Gauteng has postponed its provincial march to Gauteng Department of Health and Government Employees Medical Scheme (GEMS) in favour of the national march on the 22nd February 2017 in Pretoria and we call on all our structures to mobilise and rally behind this march.
DENOSA says NO to long queues in health facilities.
DENOSA says NO to poor health care services.
DENOSA says No to bad working Conditions.
DENOSA calls on Minister of Health, Dr Aaron Motsoaledi, to implement consistently the nursing strategy by reviewing the benefits and compensation of nurses i.e. Occupation-Specific Dispensation (OSD) for nurses.
