Hospitals play catch-up after six-month backlog in elective surgeries

13 Oct 2020

 Hospitals are now faced with long waiting lists for oncology as well as non-oncology surgery procedures.

Health Department spokesperson Popo Maja said the exact number of backlogs at state hospitals was not readily available but, it can be assumed that the backlog will be higher than the private sector because of the number of citizens who solely depend on the public sector for medical needs.
