Chair, I will ignore everybody. With only 37% of performance targets met so far, what guarantee do we have that the additional monies to be voted today will have a significant impact on health care services in public hospitals? Secondly, the Treasury is about to complete the most affordable model for the establishment of the National Health Insurance scheme, currently estimated to be R250 billion.
With regard to the manner in which the NHI has been budgeted for in terms of being introduced, it seems as if a parallel budget for the Department of Health is being developed in terms of which we will end up having a Department of Health budget and a National Health Insurance budget. The question is: Why is this budget not part of the national department's budget?
