The Mpumalanga Health Department says its public hospitals have improved their delivery of services to the public.

This comes after the department established a team of officials and nurses to assist the struggling hospitals to improve services in order to meet national standards.

The department has however acknowledged that some institutions such as the Matibidi hospital are still struggling.

“None of the hospitals are fully compliance to the national core standard but we have seen a great improvement, we have seen Rob Ferreira moving from 78% to a higher percentage where it is scoring about 84% according to the norms and standard but we do acknowledge that there are hospitals that are not doing very well, hospitals like Matibidi where have seen a decline in the performance,” says Departmental Acting Deputy Director-General Sipho Motau.
