Are you a health practitioner struggling with placement?
Solidarity is worried about the administrative inability of the Department of Health who aren’t following their procedural guidelines for the placing of medical practitioners for community service.
Read the Department’s placement guidelines here.

In July 2017, Solidarity obtained a verdict in the Pretoria High Court in a case on behalf of Dané Hertz when she wasn’t placed in a community service position after all three placement rounds expired. The Department of Health was ordered to place Hertz within 30 days of the ruling at the clinic where she originally applied.

The case has created an important precedent that may soon be used as a crucial judgment to assist students that are currently experiencing similar problems.
