MEC Masuku spends night with paramedics as part of monthly voluntary work

On Saturday night MEC for Health Dr Bandile

Masuku rolled up his sleeves and spent the night with Emergency Medical

Services night shift crew, based at Dr Yusuf Dadoo Hospital, attending to calls

as part of his once a month voluntary clinical work initiative.

Together with the EMS crew, MEC Masuku attended

to various distressed calls and other emergency related activities such as home

baby delivery, an assault case and motor accident scene amongst others.

Dr Masuku who was accompanied by the provincial

head of EMS Arnold Malotana had an opportunity to experience first-hand the

work of EMS and the challenges.

MEC Masuku shared his time with EMS crew with

his followers on Twitter:

We are at the Dr Yusuf Dadoo EMS Base we are

joining the Gauteng EMS night shift as part of our once a month voluntary

clinical work. We are committed to improving staff morale our visit this

evening forms part efforts to support frontline staff. We are here all night.

Super proud of the team in my office, who took

up the challenge and did basic life training.

Thank you @GautengEMS Dr Yusuf Dadoo Base for

allowing us to spend our once a month voluntary clinical work with you. Join us

every month, you do not have to be a clinician, help out where you can. Let’s

improve the Gauteng Health system together.

Some of MEC’s Masuku followers were moved by

the initiative and as result they promised to in join on voluntary basis.
