The department’s core function is the provision of health care, which focuses mainly on the District Health System, based on the Primary Health Care Approach. Health care services are provided at a primary, secondary and tertiary level.
Primary health care service is achieved through clinics, community health centres and district hospitals. Secondary health care services are available at Dr Harry Surtie Hospital. Kimberley Hospital provides almost the complete range of tertiary health care services. In addition, the department further fund the training of student nurses, as well as a range of post diploma qualifications in clinical, through the Henrietta Stockdale Nursing College.

The Adjusted Estimates of Provincial Revenue and Expenditure (AEPRE) is a book published along with the tabling of the adjusted budget.
Budgeted and actual expenditure/allocations for a department can increase or decrease from year to year. Changes in expenditure for a department can be because of changes in the activities of the department, because of changes in priorities between departments, because of cost efficiencies or because of increases in the price of goods and services due to inflation.
The chart shows the department’s actual expenditure for past years, and budgeted expenditure for the current year and the upcoming three years of the medium-term expenditure framework (MTEF). By adjusting these numbers to take inflation into account, it is possible to determine if a department’s expenditure is really increasing or decreasing in real terms, as compared to the rest of the economy.
Previous financial years indicate actual expenditure while upcoming financial years indicate estimated expenditure:
