With all the political tension and negativity in South Africa, sometimes the good goes unnoticed or is blurred between all the pessimism.
Well, I hope I can bring some hope to the nation. I always thought Government hospitals were incompetent and service delivery was non-existent. Our domestic fell and broke her ankle yesterday (29 August) so I rushed her to the George Hospital.
On arrival I was received with enthusiasm, the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Two doctors came out with a porter and helped her onto a bed and took her in.
They then kindly requested that I open a file for her. When I arrived at reception, I was helped immediately and fortunately she was already on the system so the file was readily available. I am still in awe as to how efficient, helpful and friendly all the staff were. Keep up the brilliant work, you give us all hope for a bright future in South Africa.
