Independent Health Watchdog by April – Sefularo

The Department of Health to establish an independent health watchdog by April 2010

The Department of Health has announced that an independent health watchdog will be introduced by April to ensure clinics and hospitals adhere to quality standards.

Deputy Health Minister, Molefi Sefularo, points out that the National Health Act will be amended to create the watchdog body, which will report to Parliament either directly or through the health minister.

Although there is already a standards office within the Health Department, it is felt the proposed body should not be within the department it is supposed to judge.
