Suppliers and contractors who have done work for the Gauteng health department are struggling to receive their rightful payments.

Those who owe less than R5 million will not receive payments until late April, while larger suppliers will be paid over a period of three years.

Treasury, and normal business practices, stipulate that all accounts must be paid within 30 days.
