Me­dia must gi­ve cre­dit w­he­re it’s due

John Gra­ham, Knys­na:

I re­fer to M-Net pro­gram­me Car­te Blan­che (Sun­day 8 Ju­ly) w­he­re it was re­por­ted, to­get­her with vi­su­als, of the dis­gus­ting con­di­ti­ons in go­vern­ment he­alt­hca­re in­sti­tu­ti­ons, es­pe­ci­al­ly in Gau­teng and North West.

I re­si­de in Knys­na, and for me­di­cal re­a­sons was re­fer­red by the cli­nic to the pro­vin­ci­al hos­pi­tal, and then to Ge­or­ge Hos­pi­tal (pri­va­te he­alt­hca­re I can ill af­ford).

All fa­ci­li­ties are im­ma­cu­la­te­ly cle­an and well run, and all me­di­cal at­ten­dants (doc­tors and nur­ses) com­mit­ted to gi­ving ex­cel­lent me­di­cal ca­re.

I feel the me­dia, w­hi­le dam­ning bad­ly run and filthy in­sti­tu­ti­ons cor­rect­ly, could al­so re­port on tho­se that need ap­plau­ding.

This could mag­ni­fy the mi­su­se of sta­te funds in this re­gard.
