Unions march to Chris Hani Baragwanath hospital

JOHANNESBURG - Labour unions are expected to march against corruption and staff shortages at Chris Hani Baragwanath Hospital.

The march comes amid allegations of corruption at the institution. 

The Health Department has carried out an investigation into these claims, but it's refusing to release the report. 

Unions - among them Denosa, Hospersa, Nehawu and the PSA - are demanding access to that report.

Earlier this year, the Economic Freedom Fighters marched to the hospital, demanding it provide quality healthcare and reduce child mortality. 

Nursing union Denosa has threatened to withdraw its services if its demands are not met.
