DR ZUMA'S SPECIAL ADVISOR APPOINTED CHIEF DIRECTOR
Hospitals and Academic Health Service Complexes are vital components of the new South African National Health System. The overall structure of the system within which they will operate, including funding policy and the roles of national, provincial and district health authorities, has been clarified. Major attention can now, therefore, be given to coordinating the work of the Academic Health Service Complexes and to assisting provides to improve hospital services.
The Minister of Health, Dr N C Dlamini Zuma has therefore recommended to the Public Service Commission that her Special Advisor, Dr T D Wilson, be appointed as Chief Director in the Department of Health responsible for Hospitals and Academic Health Service Complexes.
Dr Wilson trained and worked first as a Paediatrician, and later in Epidemiology and Community Health. He has worked at Groote Schuur, Baragwanath, Coronation and Johannesburg Hospitals, as well as at the CJM Hospital at Nqutu in KwaZulu/Natal. From 1986 to 1993 he was Director of the Alexandra Health Centre and University Clinic.
