Government has allowed all health workers to work three days a week to cushion them from transport costs.

This is on condition they work 12 hours a day instead of the usual nine.

The proposed working hours for two weeks are 77, broken down to three days for the first week and four days for the second week.

This translates to 154 hours a month.

In a circular to all hospital administrators, Acting Secretary For Health And Child Care Dr Gibson Mhlanga said this was an interim arrangement.

It started with nurses but is now applicable across all health categories.

He said the arrangement will enable the health workers to cope with the transport challenges until the situation stabilises.

Dr Mhlanga said it is important that the arrangement does not disrupt service provision.
