Doctors help hospices

The OFS Goldfields Branch of the South African Medical Association (Sama) in Welkom donated R10 000 to the Goldfields Hospice Association.

Marli Young, general manager of the association accepted the cheque from Dr Flip Nieuwoudt on Friday (31/05).

Sama was originally established in 1960 and serves doctors from Welkom, Virginia, Hennenman, Ventersburg, Theunissen, Odendaalsrus, Allanridge, Bothaville, Wesselsbron and Hoopstad.

Private and fulltime doctors working at government hospitals form the membership of the branch.

The Goldfields branch might be one of the smaller branches, but they are very active and involved in all medical issues in South Africa. They keep their members updated.

“We here in the Goldfields have a rich and long history. This branch was founded due to the unique circumstances in the then rich and developing Goldfields area of old. They had to deal with a lot of matters in the mining sector, which was totally different from the Free State branch, situated in Bloemfontein,” says Dr Flip Nieuwoudt, chairman of the Goldfields branch.

Nieuwoudt says two monthly branch council meetings take place to discuss all relevant matters concerning medical events.

“CPD (Continuous Professional Development) events, in co-operation with Mediclinic and St. Helena Private Hospital, are held on arranged dates to keep the doctors up to date with the latest developments in the medical world,” he says.

“Our geographical area and job opportunities allow for only so many doctors to be employed in the private and public sectors, but the Goldfields branch is going strong with the majority of doctors members.”
