TO: Nursing Practitioners
FROM: Acting Registrar and CEO
SUBJECT: Illegal Intermediaries

Kindly take note that any service provider offering services to obtain your Annual Practicing Certificate on your behalf is doing so without the approval of the South African Nursing Council.

SANC Management strongly advise against nursing practitioners making use of such service providers as you are providing outsiders with your private information that can be used in fraudulent activities. You are also paying unnecessarily for a service. Please see the correct payment options as per the official SANC communication.

Kindly also specifically take note that the service provider using the name “SANC Assist” is an illegal service provider using the official intellectual property of the South African Nursing Council (the abbreviation “SANC”) illegally and is no way attached to or approved by the SANC. The South African Nursing Council will take no responsibility whatsoever for any nursing practitioners who loses their Annual Practicing Certificates, or whose Annual Practicing Certificates is used in fraudulent activities, as a result of their making use of the services of the “SANC Assist”.

Your kind cooperation in this regard would be highly appreciated as we do not want to see any of our nursing practitioners suffer harm.

Yours sincerely

(Signed)
