No my dear colleague, it's not "the introduction of the Medical Schemes" that brought the health services to it's knees. It's the maladministration and corruption of the Dept of Health. The minister is hell bent on his NHI. He seems to think the NHI will be a magic wand that will fix ALL health services in the country. He doesn't seem to know that it works the other way round namely, first fix your state hospitals, clinics and medical faculties. Only THEN can you think of introducing something like an NHI. As it is at the moment; white paper stage, that white paper come in rolls and this one is not even double ply! It will go the same route as the nuclear deal!

To conclude, I must congratulate you in making the right choice regarding the medical attention of your relative!
