Flohoc Investments is part of Life Healthcare group and their systems have been down for over three weeks now.
I've been trying to get and invoice from them to submit to my medical aid but no luck :mad:

Lol, guys dig deeper. Three weeks down and that is the answer? They were caught with their pants down. I wouldn't be surprised to see patient information floating around the Internet soon.

X-rays could also not be sent from the radiology department to the emergency room. Doctors had to walk between departments to physically fetch x-rays.

Shame, poor Doctors. To get all them money and then have to resort to walking.
And don't tell me, they don't have gofers to do the fetching.

That's a pretty dumb comment. You're in serious pain, now the doctor has to leave for 10-15 minutes to go get the X Ray. What a waste of a doctors time.
Also using a doctor as a runner seems like a very expensive runner.
