Meanwhile, Times Live (22 June 2022) reported that a law professor said: “It appears the functionaries who sought to discipline paediatric gastroenterologist Dr Tim de Maayer for highlighting problems at the hospital he worked in were guilty of violating the constitution and the relevant legislation affecting children, and should be disciplined.”
In article published in SA Medical Journal (20 June 2022) Prof David McQuoid-Mason, professor of law at the University of KwaZulu-Natal, said an analysis of the constitution, the National Health Act, the Children’s Act, the Health Professions Act and the rules and guidelines of the Health Professions Council of SA (HPCSA)  indicates that De Maayer acted both legally and ethically to protect the child patients at Rahima Moosa Mother and Child Hospital.
