DENOSA at Thelle Mogoerane Hospital pleased with commitment to hire 50 more nurses and 90 additional support staff at the hospital  

Media statement 

Thursday, 11 October 2018


DENOSA at Thelle Mogoerane regional Hospital branch is pleased that through many tough and rough engagements with management and various stakeholders, our struggle to better Thelle Mogoerane regional hospital has yielded positive results following the commitment by the management to hire 50 more nurses at the hospital as well as more than 90 additional support staff.

After countless deliberations with the HOD of health, Professor Lukhele, we are pleased to say more than 50 nurses posts will be advertised tomorrow on the DPSA website, starting from the DD of nursing, professional nurses as well as enrolled nurses. Together with other unions namely, NEHAWU, HOSPERSA and PSA, we managed to get our message of staff shortages at Thelle Mogoerane regional hospital across, and this has resulted in further 93 posts in total to be advertised tomorrow ranging from HR practitioners, doctors, cleaners, porters to property care takers as well as kitchen aid assistants. 

DENOSA at Thelle Mogoerane also wants to place it on record that it fought tirelessly to make sure that all community service nurses and enrolled nurses are placed on correct posts and remunerated accordingly. We left no stone unturned by also making sure that those who were shortchanged on their uniform allowance get the outstanding amount and such will be done by no later than 28 October as promised by the new acting HR Manager. The interim management placed at Thelle Mogoerane by professor Lukhele, led by acting CEO Doctor Malaka from Far East Rand Hospital, is working together with all stakeholders to get this institution back to its rightful place of being the best health care service provider in Gauteng or the country as a whole. 

The branch leadership of DENOSA in Thelle Mogoerane is going to be in full support and be of assistance to the new team and wish them well and the best. We encourage the community of Kathorus, those who are highly skilled, competent and patient/community centered, to apply for the various work opportunities which shall be advertised from tomorrow.

We are also pleased that this development will improve the quality of healthcare that our patients and community desperately need from the hospital.
