Re: Doctors Commuted Overtime Study for Public Sector Doctors
PE Corporate Services (‘PECS’), a well-known and established South African management consultancy, has been commissioned by the South African Medical Association (SAMA) to conduct an investigation into the levels of overtime worked by medical practitioners in the public service.
A key objective of the study is to establish the relative equity of current National Department of Health overtime pay arrangements, and formulate recommendations on how any inequities should be addressed. This investigation forms part of a broader study into the remuneration and working conditions of medical practitioners in South Africa.
As part of this exercise PECS needs to gather current data on overtime hours worked by medical practitioners, and the impact of this on career and lifestyle goals.
We will greatly appreciate your assistance in completing the attached questionnaire and submitting it to us by return before 12 May 2019
Your responses will be treated as strictly confidential, and any information you supply will not be shared with anyone or any organisation not directly connected with this project. All the responses received will be collated and reported on in the form of aggregated analyses of overall trends and statistics. This further ensures the responses received will not be individualised.
