Pretoria West Community Care Forum

You matter to the last moment of your life,

and we will do all we can,

not only to help you die peacefully

but also to live until you die.”

Dame Cicely Saunders – Founder of the modern hospice movement

Western Pretoria in the Greater Tshwane Metropolitan District is a low socio- economic area with a population of 214 967, which is 10% of the total population of Tshwane. The community consists of 70% White, 26% Black and 4% Coloured/Indian residents.

The unemployment rate has increased by 74% from 1998 to 2002 and is currently estimated at 39,72%. 9- 20% of the households have no income at all. There are 77 squatter camps in the area where 131 000 people live in old wooden huts, broken caravans, squatter huts and other makeshift housing. Poverty has increased by 150% from 1994 to 2005.

Smoking, alcohol and drug abuse is common in the area. No specific statistics for Western Pretoria is available, but for the Greater Tshwane Metropolitan Health District, the HIV/AIDS prevalence is 15,32 % and the cancer prevalence is 9.44%. Estimated cancer prevalence in the Pretoria West area alone is 33.35%. Patients visit the Tshwane District Hospital, Kalafong Hospital or the Steve Biko Academic Hospital for treatment. Transport for the ill is inadequate and this forces patients to walk to health care facilities.

There is a substantial need for day- care and home- based care services as the Tshwane Health Home Based Carers visit only 0.2% of patients in need. There are 29 old age homes, 15 welfare homes, 2 municipal clinics and 1 development (HPCA affiliated member) hospice in the area.

From 2005 to 2010, 144 patients were referred to Sungardens Hospice Pretoria, of whom 130 died and 14 are still being cared for. More than 90% of these patients had cancer and less than 10% suffered from HIV/AIDS. This is unfortunately only a drop in the ocean considering the actual numbers of people living with life- threatening disease. Many people suffering from life- threatening disease are not receiving palliative care and are dying painfully and without dignity.

The Pretoria West Community Care Forum was initiated by Sungardens Hospice Pretoria in response to an initiative from (HPCA) Hospice Palliative Care Association of South Africa to promote and provide “Quality Palliative Care for All”. Potential networking partners were invited to a successful workshop on 31 March 2010 where the Sustainable Palliative Care through Strategic Partnerships (SPCSP) project was introduced to attendees. The outcome of this workshop was that several organisations working in the Pretoria West area were keen to become networking partners of Sungardens Hospice Pretoria and to form a palliative care forum to promote and enhance quality palliative care for all in the area.

The first forum meeting was held on 5 May 2010. It was decided and agreed that Sungardens Hospice Pretoria would be steering the forum to develop a palliative care strategy, which is based on what organisations can offer towards palliative care. This palliative care strategy would be presented individually to all parties concerned to obtain their approval and endorsement and would constitute a formal memorandum of agreement between members of the forum. It was agreed that all the member organisations of the forum will be responsible to ensure that this strategy is implemented in the Pretoria West area.

Invoice Factoring -an advance on money due to you from a business


#

Invoice Factoring

Its what your looking for

What is factoring:

Invoice factoring is essentially an advance on money / cash due to a business, by means of the sale of the invoices to a bridging company. This is not a loan against invoices but an outright sale of selected invoices ( one or many ) or the full debtors book, to a bridging finance company, but with recourse to the seller of the full invoice value.

Why use single invoice factoring or selective invoice discounting

This is a very simple and reasonably quick method (within 2 weeks of receipt of all documents) used by businesses to improve cash flow or working capital as and when needed. There is no lock in period and no penalty for early settlement. You elect to bridge one or a few invoices not the entire debtors book.


Costs Once

Once off set up fee of approx 3 % to 5 % depending on the size of the invoice bridging required. Monthly cost of between 4,5 % and 6 %

Pre-Conditions to Discount Invoices:
The goods /services must have been delivered / rendered and the customer must have accepted the goods / services with no pending disputes. The company requesting the bridging should be profitable and have a clean credit record.

Leratong Hospice. Pretoria

Description Leratong Hospice, Pretoria

The services offered are holistic and provided on the basis of the principle of “continuum of care” (from initial assessment and admission to end care). They include a whole range of services such as: material support, medical treatment, psycho-social services. Services are free and specifically targeting the members of our communities and within them a special focus is placed on the following direct beneficiaries: the terminally ill suffering from HIV/Aids and other chronic diseases, the elderly in need of care.

Company description
The services are directed to a very disadvantaged community, unable to access any other forms of services any where else.

The services are of the highest professional standards, it is patient-centered, culturally relevant and sensitive.

The methodology used is recognized by the Hospice Palliative Care Association of South Africa and incorporates elements of recognized local best practice, pastoral care and international practices.

The high quality of the services was recognized, amongst others, by MEDUNSA (Medical University of South Africa) who chose Leratong as a training site for their medical students to experience palliative care in action.
