The Western Cape Provincial Department of Health urgently needs doctors (medical officers). The department is currently experiencing major service pressures in child health, obstetric care and emergency care. As a result we urgently require more doctors especially to render services in these fields.

Currently full time doctors are offered training where they can obtain for diplomas in these fields. In addition the department provides part-time opportunities for doctors as well. The National Department of Health is also currently urgently reviewing the salary packages of doctors and we are sure that salaries will improve dramatically soon.
