Emergency Medical Services and other facilities in the Eastern Cape continue to experience phone line outages.

These disruptions occurred a week ago due to the provincial health department's failure to settle payments with service providers. The situation has left staff members resorting to their personal cell phones to manage medical emergencies.

The Eastern Cape Health Department acknowledges the issue and advises individuals requiring assistance to utilize alternative contact numbers.
