• PGDP

• 2010

• Department of Public Works
                               5 Myths / Realities


• PPPs are just another form of privatization

• Private Sector is the winner, and the public the
  loser (services, costs/budget, inequities,
  institutional capacity, unsolicited bids, etc.)

• Employees of the affected institutions will lose
  their jobs

• Users of the services will no longer be able to
  afford them

• No opportunities for local communities to
  participate in the economic spin-offs
Co-location PPP’s
         The model :
                       Structure of Co-location PPP

• Private Party upgrades & maintains facility and provides
  non-core services;

• Public sector serves public patients (doctors, nursing &
  pharmaceuticals)

• Private party serves private patients in dedicated wards

• Each party has own exclusive use areas (eg. Theatres)

• Shared facilities for joint use (eg. Admissions)

• Cross servicing for some services at agreed charge per
  use (eg. Maternity)
                       What does Department need?

• Upgrade existing hospital facilities to modern
  specifications;

• Improved medical equipment;

• On-going maintenance to keep to above at high standard;

• Provision of certain non-core services;

• Transfer of skills

• All = IMPROVED HEALTH FACILITIES FOR ALL
                      Non-core Services Required

• Estate maintenance.

• Ground and gardens.

• Cleaning.

• Patient catering.

• Security.

• Waste control.

• Pest control.

• Utilities management (rates and services).

• Life-cycle asset management.
                         Human Resource Impact


• Only non-clinical posts are to be affected

• Department position = no retrenchments

• Unions informed and support PPP process

• Looking for innovative solutions from partner
               What does Department offer?




• Right to establish co-located private
  hospital facilities on premises

• Unitary payment:
      – Fixed component;
      – Variable component; and
      – Profit share to Department
Humansdorp District Hospital
                                             Background

• Maintenance backlogs – competing needs

• Population growth – more beds needed

• Private patients traveling to P.E. for services

• Tourist destinations of Jeffreys’ Bay – increased
  seasonal demands

• Shortage of Medical professionals
                                                           Goals

• Improve hospital services for public patients by:

    – improving the condition and maintenance of buildings,
      grounds and equipment

    – improving the supply of water, electricity, gases

    – improving patient management and/or clinical care

    – Improving the hospital and info. Management syst’s

• Provide private hospital services for private patients
  who are presently inconvenienced by having to go
  outside the district for care

• Improve PHC services for HIV/AIDS and TB prevention
  and care..
                                         Goals (Cont.)


Assumptions:

• No differentiation between public and private patients
  when it came to clinical care.

• No negative impact on public sector labour.

• the hospital budget will increase or be maintained at
  necessary levels

• revenue should be taken in kind where possible.
                              Benefits to Stakeholder


• for departments – PPPs must be an accessible, relevant,
  viable and beneficial service delivery option

• for the users of services – PPPs must result in
  accessible, affordable and safe services that meet
  acceptable quality standards

• for society – PPPs must promote goals such as social
  equity, economic empowerment, efficient utilisation of
  scarce resources, and protection of the environment

• for private parties – PPPs must be sufficiently rewarding
  in relation to the investment required and the risks
  undertaken.
                                      Why PPP?


 A Public Private Partnership (PPP) was seen
   as providing the opportunity to revitalise, &
upgrade the district hospital, generate revenue
from the private sector via shared services and
    create additional beds within the district.
