KwaZulu-Natal Health MEC Nomagugu Simelane-Zulu has welcomed the delivery of three brand new 65-seater buses, saying they would boost access to healthcare for patients from rural areas who need to attend high-level health facilities in faraway cities.
The buses, which are worth R1,7 million each, will be added to the Department’s existing fleet of Planned Patient Transport vehicles, and will serve communities in eThekwini, King Cetshwayo and Uthukela districts.
“We are very happy with the buses. I do believe they’re going to improve the service that the Department of Health is providing to the patients. Particularly those who need to attend certain appointments in our tertiary institutions,” said MEC Simelane-Zulu.
