The Health Department is expected to release a report next month on the impact of the public servants' strike within the health sector.

Health Minister Manto Tshabalala-Msimang said in Durban on Saturday that it was a distressing experience, not only for patients but for everyone involved within the sector.

"We noted with grave concern the negativity the strike had on the health sector.

"It was a very painful experience, especially considering that we had to spend a lot of money to transport patients from our hospitals to private hospitals," Tshabalala-Msimang said.
