Access to person-centered quality care.
We undertake to provide equitable access to quality health services in partnership with the relevant
stakeholders within a balanced and well-managed health system to the people of the Western Cape and
Western Cape Government: Health is primarily responsible for providing health services to the population of
the Province, approximately 6.2 million of which 75 per cent is estimated to be uninsured. Tertiary hospitals
are considered to be a national resource and therefore obliged to provide for people beyond the
provincial borders, and this is in line with the National Tertiary Services Grant.
The Department will continue to provide a comprehensive, cost-effective package of health services to the
people of the Western Cape. This includes preventive, promotive, curative, rehabilitative and palliative
District health services including: home and community-based care, clinics, community day/health
centres and district hospitals.
Provincial, central and specialised hospital services, which include hospitals such as Tuberculosis,
Psychiatric and Rehabilitation hospitals.
Emergency medical and planned patient transport services.
Forensic pathology: medico-legal and inspector of anatomy services.
The Estimates of Provincial Revenue and Expenditure (EPRE) sets out the detailed spending plans of each government department for the coming year.
