OHSC response to the article by the Business Day

The Office of Health Standards Compliance (OHSC) wishes to distance itself from the misleading heading that appeared in the Business Day on the 6th June 2018, related to the report delivered by the OHSC in Parliament on the 5th June with the heading, “Public health care ‘in shambles.’

The OHSC presented a report that showed some improvement in certain areas; stagnation and decline in other areas. The report cannot be characterized as an indication that the health care system is ‘in shambles’.

The OHSC has further noted that the 80% scoring is regarded as a “pass mark” for heath establishments; the Office will engage with the media to explain the scoring system used in the report.
