  5. Feedback Community Service PTs: • Many provinces did not have a specific welcome • Lack of supervision for community service and junior therapists • Community service is well on its way, some provinces completed their selection, awaiting the outcome of final rounds. The WC held its Allied Health stakeholder meeting for community service placements on 31 July 2013. All 23 placements in WC were filled following the first round. • Post are gazetted in February • We need to understand the processes in the various provinces • Data base of CS PT – will be received from the universities • Placements • Powerpoint presentation on CV writing

  6. Occupation Specific Dispensation: • On-going concerns regarding translation, grade progression and accelerated progression. • No response from the Minister of health regarding, OSD concerns incl supervisors and managers translation with yrs experience

  7. Physiotherapy Assistants/PTT • There have been several requests from various provinces regarding the up skilling of PTA’s to PTT’s. • The course is initially only open to KZN PTA’s as the funding is from the KwaZulu Natal DOH, once all KZN PTA’s are trained the program will be open to other provinces, provided that the course will still receive funding. • The candidates that failed the course last year will be allowed to re-do their exams in 2014. • no specific training and no refresher courses

  8. Human Resources • Not enough senior staff members • Shortage of posts. Poorly run HR departments and HRD departments. • Some provinces are really struggling to get clarity on the number of post of PT’s in the provinces, including funded and non-funded posts. Western Cape is embarking on completing a situational analysis for Allied Health. This will allow for accurate numbers regarding the number of PT’s at the various level including the rural and urban divide. This will go a long way in trying to motivate for posts where it is needed most.
