JOHANNESBURG – South African Medical Association says the National Health Bureau has agreed that Gauteng doctors will receive salaries on Friday.

On Monday, several medical practitioners and community physicians were informed that they would not receive their January wages.

The department says the default was due to delays in processing personal data of new employees.

Medical practitioners in the province said Witness's News about their frustrations to lag behind the monthly cost as a result of default.

Several doctors in more than five hospitals say they were told that they would be paid 28. February.

The association says the obligation to pay a doctor is done by the Department of Health.

Eddie Ngwenya of the association says: "The State Administration has confirmed and established a link with the provincial health departments and has taken it."

Ngwenya says if the ministry does not fulfill its obligations, doctors will act.

"There is a possibility that doctors no longer provide services for which they are not paid."
