Rural Doctor of the Year 2023
Dr Bukiwe Spondo
Dr Bukiwe Spondo worked at Tafalofefe Distrcit Hospital, Eastern Cape from 2007. The hospital is in a deeply impoverished , if beautiful area, of Centane village. It is not easily accessible due to the poor condition of the roads, and with rains even staff have difficulty going to work because of the mud. She was nominated for the Award by the CEO and her co-workers who highlighted her dedication, hard work and caring for people in their community.
Bukiwe started at the Masibambane ARV Clinic...
Dr Jenny Nash, a previous Award winnerby Sulaiman Philip
Its a 140km round trip to the furthest of the five clinics in rural Eastern Capes Amahlathi Municipality for Dr Jennifer Nash. This years Rural Doctor of the Year uses the time to think, to relax, to chill. She sounds chipper as she talks: It's my alone time. I have 20 minutes of radio reception, and then its me and the beautiful scenery.
