Closures of health institutions

There are only two reasons why the Authority would close health institutions. 

  1. When the health institution poses health hazards to the pubic- such institutions will be closed with immediate effect in the interest of the public.
  2. When the health institution fails to meet compliance requirements.  Institutions will have been advised to take steps to meet the minimum requirements of their category within a given time frame and they have not done so.

The closure of a health institution is the last resort; the authority prefers to engage in dialogue than to close health institutions.  The closure of the institution/s will deprive the community of necessary care and treatment. Practitioners are therefore expected to understand and comply.
