guiding the professions

For the Public

Other healthcare practitioners

Is your complaint related to a nurse?
If you feel that a nurse acted negligently or unethically, individual nurses can be reported to the South African Nursing Council (SANC) to investigate the complaint.

Is your complaint related to an alternative healthcare practitioner (natural healers, homeopath etc)?
If you feel that an alternative healthcare practitioner acted negligently or unethically, report to the Allied Health Professions Council of South Africa (AHPCSA) to investigate the complaint.
