A list of 10 illegally practising or unregistered medical practitioners issuing bogus medical certificates for people to get off work in the Western Cape has been released by the Health Professions Council of South Africa (HPCSA).
The aim is to create awareness among employers, employees and the public.
Spokesperson Priscilla Sekhonyana says the HPCSA has in its possession 28 fake medical certificates reported to the Cape Town office, GroundUp reported.
GroundUp reported in 2015 that fake medical certificates were being sold in Katlehong on the East Rand in Johannesburg.
