6.    DEBIT AND CREDIT CARD FACILITIES

South African Nursing Council now offers its clients debit and credit card facilities at its offices for payment of fees and for purchasing of distinguishing devices and printed matter.

The benefits to clients making use of debit or credit card payment facilities at the Council offices are:

bulletClients using the facilities when they have to make payments and/or purchase goods will not have to carry large amounts of cash with them
bulletThe incidence of cases where clients do not have sufficient cash to cover the required fees or the cost of their purchases will be reduced with a corresponding decrease in the inconvenience that this causes the clients.

 

7.    REQUIREMENTS WHEN PAYING BY CHEQUE

South African Nursing Council is receiving an ever increasing number of dishonoured or fraudulent cheques from clients.  As a result, with effect from 1 January 2011, all cheques payable to the Council at the counter or sent through the post must be BANK GUARANTEED.  Cheques which are not bank guaranteed will not be accepted for payment to the Council after 1 January 2011.  Clients are encouraged to make use of the debit/credit card facilities mentioned in 2 above for payment of Council fees and/or services.

WARNING!
Recently several nurses gave their fees to a third party who paid the fees at the Council counter using a fraudulent cheque – and pocketed the money.  Clients who entrust their fees to another party to pay on their behalf are warned to only use someone who is completely trustworthy.  As an alternative, Council encourages clients to pay their fees into the Council’s bank account – this is the safest method of payment for those who live far from the Council offices.  The Council bank details are:
