“I feel so hon­oured to be part of this pres­ti­gious event, where em­ploy­ees who demon­strated an abil­ity and will­ing­ness to work pos­i­tively with oth­ers will be awarded. I am say­ing to them, we be­lieve in you and to­gether we can change the neg­a­tive per­cep­tion that peo­ple have about our health fa­cil­i­ties.

Con­tinue to let your light shine and refuse to be the weak­est link to our health care sys­tem,” Dr Pha­latse com­mented. Among the win­ners was Ivory Park clinic on spe­cial project cat­e­gory. This clinic con­verted an area that was used by the com­mu­nity as il­le­gal dump­ing site into a veg­etable garden. The veg­etable is sold to the com­mu­nity at a very rea­son­able price. Senzo Mchunu, Hu- man Re­source Prac­ti­tioner in Jo­han­nes­burg Health Dis­trict could not hide his hap­pi­ness as he was re­ceiv­ing his tro­phy and cer­tifi­cate for be­ing an out­stand­ing in­di­vid­ual who con­sis­tently go be­yond the call of duty, and he had to say that: “I thought I was dream­ing when my name was called.
