Tshwane clinics were announced as top performers in a recent report by an independent healthcare regulator.

This is according to the annual inspection report findings on public sector health, published by the Office of Health Standards Compliance (OHSC).

The report follows inspections conducted on the extent to which health care facilities comply with standards nationally.

“The OHSC provided an overall look at how public healthcare facilities performed in districts across all provinces,” the Tshwane metro said.

A total of 48 out of 52 districts were inspected during the 2016/17 financial year. All the inspections were unannounced.

The metro was the top performer, with an average score of 70 percent across its facilities.

“We welcome the results, but maintain that more should be done to achieve an even higher score,” it said.

The metro said it plans to launch a multi-region upgrading of the clinic dispensaries in the near future. This will ensure that each clinic has a pharmacy, according to the national norms and standards.

The metro has also extended service hours of the city’s 24 facilities.
