Delay on Postage from South African Nursing Council (SANC)



To inform nurse practitioners about the delay of postage from South African Nursing Council due to unprotected industrial action by South African Post Office’s casual and part time employees.


The South African Post Office (SAPO) embarked on unprotected industrial action which has extended to three weeks.  Due to this, the South African Nursing Council (SANC) would like to sensitise nurse practitioners and other relevant stakeholders of the huge delays and backlogs caused on the postage of correspondences from SANC.

Though SAPO has contingency plans and precautionary measures in place, the impact might still have negative consequences. You will be kept abreast with further developments in this regard.

We apologise for the inconvenience caused.
