INCREASE PHARMACIST LOCUM RATE TO R500 PER HOUR
Pharmacists are trusted healthcare professionals and face a wide array of unique challenges. The low pay rate of locum Pharmacists in South Africa is one of the challenges encountered. We petition that the interest of Pharmacists be taken seriously by revising the current scale for all Pharmacists nationwide; by paying a rate of R500 per hour. Cost of living keeps on rising but our rate has been the same for the past 10 years. We also want our rate to increase above inflation yearly.
