Abstract

TAYLOR, A  and  KAHN, D. The RWOPS debate - yes we can!. SAMJ, S. Afr. med. j. [online]. 2014, vol.104, n.7, pp.475-477. ISSN 2078-5135.

Remunerated work outside of public service (RWOPS) has largely been seen in a negative light. This is partly a result of the Public Service Commission review undertaken in 2004, but attitudes are also shaped by unsubstantiated reports of abuse. There are, however, potential advantages for both patients and doctors if RWOPS is done without neglecting public sector service and academic commitments. We explore some of the issues around controlling RWOPS, and the experience with this in the Department of Surgery at the University of Cape Town, South Africa.
