Groote Schuur Hospital
Public healthcare in our country – where do I start? The very idea of it is synonymous with news reports of patients left to suffer in hospital passages, insufficient facilities and poor medical advice. Last week I booked into my first public hospital, and got to experience what it’s all about, first hand. This is how it went down.
Healthcare in South Africa is a conundrum. The rich can afford medical aid, so can the people living beyond their means every month, but for a typical twenty-something year old who isn’t taking home 30k a month, and whose parents aren’t swimming in money like Scrooge McDuck, what is the answer?
Brewers & Union and PUMA present REAL MUSIC WEDNESDAY in Cape Town kicking off on Wednesday, 7 March 2012.

I am a slave to email. It is my communication medium of choice for both receiving and sending. Unlike a phone call, email less unintrusive because I can read it when I'm not busy with something else (yes, I can ignore my phone, but I don't during the day). It is also a format I can keep as a reference or to mull over. And, unlike a phone call, it is there in black and white, not in-one-side-and-out-the-other like phone calls.
I'm compulsive about email and so I read 'em all and I answer 'em all. I especially like to answer all of the day's emails before I go to bed because if I don't, they disappear under the new day's messages.
