Gauteng Infrastructure Development MEC Bheki Nkosi said a broken lift at Johannesburg's Charlotte Maxeke Academic Hospital is being attended to.

The MEC said all 25 lifts will also be maintained on a regular basis.

Nurses, doctors and patients at the facility claim there have been ongoing problems with the lifts at the hospital.

Nkosi said some lifts in the nurses' hall were vandalised and need to be replaced.

"In total, we will replace around seven lifts by the end of 2012."
