Medics were created equal!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
- Did you know, that
there are different levels of Medics in South Africa and that the
vast majority of them are prohibited by law to practice medicine

- Did you know that
it is illegal for any Medic to work for gain in any environment
unless they are registered with the Health Professions Council of
South Africa (HPCSA)?
- Did you know that
there are only approximately 500 registered Paramedics in South
Africa and of this number approximately 40 practice in Cape Town?
- Did you know that
you are probably being overcharged for a Medic who is probably
under qualified, under equipped and overrated?
