The NHI as a whole holds great concern for medical care in South Africa. There are so many rules, regulations and control that will be applied to health practitioners and how you are going to have to do your jobs. Solidarity’s Occupational Guild for Health Practitioners wants to be a safe haven for you. Solidarity’s Occupational Guilds further understands that, to be world-class you must be free as far as possible, but the NHI will over-regulate and deprive health practitioners their freedom which will result in large numbers of medical practitioners leaving the country. The result of the NHI will cause South Africa’s medical care to collapse. Therefore, Solidarity is considering all avenues to combat the damaging effects of the implementation of the National Health Insurance (NHI).
We want to keep you informed about the progress and implementation of the NHI. Become part of Solidarity’s Occupational Guild for Health Practitioners today. Complete the form below and make your voice heard.

We want to strengthen your hands and be your voice. Become part of our occupational community.
Your membership entails:
By joining Solidarity’s Occupational Guild for Health Practitioners, you say that as a medical practitioner across many disciplines and traditional distribution lines you protest the proposed National Health Insurance. You re-confirm your willingness to serve South Africa and her people. You give recognition to the service you delivered or still deliver to the public sector. You do not want to be bound by big medical conglomerates, but definitely also not by the state.
You agree that the proposed NHI may not be implemented. You do this, not because you do not wish good health care for all South Africans, but because good health care is your passion and your career. You take note that South Africa’s medical care is anything but perfect, but the NHI will not improve it. You realise that your knowledge must be used, and medical care must go back to the drawing board, and you want to help adjust the system and improve it for everyone’s gain.
You admit that you do not want to leave the country, but the NHI leaves you with no other choice. Your condition for staying and changing the system is that you must be free to practice within healthy medical practices, to develop, reach out and care.
