Professional Services

Patient-centred care provided by dedicated, well trained and highly skilled healthcare professionals. SAMA vigorously defends the practice of medicine against scope-of-practice expansions that threaten patient safety.

We Aspire to Preserve the Medical Profession by focusing on:

01

  • Global Industry Research

02

  • Health Policy Advancement

03

  • Doctor representation of key challenges experienced in the workplace

04

  • Resolution of medical scheme disputes and forensic audits

05

  • Assistance with the establishment of new practices

06

  • Build and maintain critical relationships to advocate for our members

07

  • Thought leadership on regulatory matters and equip members with topical articles

We continue with our efforts to advance the interests of doctors by protecting competition in health care and related markets, engage government and other stakeholders in regulatory reforms needed to improve healthcare delivery rather than alienate doctors from patients, including protecting physicians from criminal liability relating to medical liability.

As medical professionals are bound in their calling by a common heritage of caring for the sick and the suffering and over the centuries, individual physicians have fulfilled this obligation by applying their skills and knowledge competently, selflessly and at most times heroically. Today, our profession must reaffirm its commitment to combat natural and man-made changes on the health and wellbeing of humankind. Only by acting together across geographic and ideological divides can we overcome such powerful threats. Humanity is our patient.

Open and honest communication between doctors and patients is a necessary part of quality health care. We believe that no one should interfere in the doctor’s ability to provide patients with reliable medical advice.
