The Hawks have arrested a  doctor and a nurse in Witbank during an operation focused on Serious Organised Crime in the area.

The nurse worked in a surgery in the city without the presence of a doctor, attended to patients  and gave out medication without any proper training. The 73-year old doctor was also dispensing scheduled medication without a dispensing license. Both had been charged with contravening the Health Professions Act.

The duo will appear in the local magistrate’s court today and investigation is continuing.
