Medical Malpractice for Healthcare Professionals
In recognition of the critical role that South African doctors play in the healthy functioning of South African society, 16 November has been declared national Doctors Day.
“Doctors play a critical role in meeting the healthcare needs of our nation,” says Dr Bettina Taylor, clinical risk specialist at EthiQal, a division of Constantia Insurance Company, the company at the head of the campaign.
“It is important to acknowledge every doctor’s contribution, be it in private practice or the public healthcare system, and whether they run primary care outpatient clinics or perform intricate minimally-invasive surgeries,” she explains.
The Doctors Day campaign aims to create awareness around the need to protect and appreciate South African doctors, and to assure them that their contributions are recognised and valued. Moreover, it’s to encourage stakeholders to come up with solutions that will aid doctors and doctors-in-training in overcoming industry challenges.
Constantia Insurance urges all South Africans to show appreciation to their doctor on Doctors Day, or to share stories of how a doctor has positively impacted their lives.
