Crackdown on unregulated medical practices

The law enforcement authorities are cracking down on unregulated medical practices.

A total of 17 unregistered doctors were arrested in different parts of Gauteng when the authorities raided their practices.

Sixteen of them pleaded guilty and had to pay fines ranging from R5 000 to R20 000 or a jail term not exceeding six months.

The crackdown was led by the National Traffic Anti-Corruption Unit of the Road Traffic Management Corporation (RMTC) in collaboration with the Health Professions Council of South Africa and the South African Medical Products Regulatory Authority.

The authorities carried out similar operations in the Nelson Mandela Bay Metro, where at least two suspects were arrested for allegedly practicing medicine unlawfully while two others were taken in for questioning.

Investigations are continuing and more arrests are expected, the RMTC said on Wednesday.

The RMTC said the arrested doctors allegedly issued medical certificates without subjecting patients to the necessary medical examination.

The RMTIC will also be turning their focus to the fraud pertaining to the issuing of drivers’ permits – which are a contributor to the high road fatalities.

The Eastern Cape is one of the provinces experiencing a high number of road fatalities and everything needs to be done to assist the province to reduce these fatalities.

According to the RMTC, a total of 9 195 public drivers’ permits were issued in the Metro last year alone.

It believes that many of these were issued to undeserving individuals.

Investigations are continuing in different parts of the country. Citizens are encouraged to assist the authorities by reporting these unlawful activities on 0861400800 or ntacu@rtmc.co.za.
