  1. 1. 12 November 2012Dear sir/madamReference Ms Amanda BrinkmanIt is my pleasure to write this letter of support for Ms Amanda Brinkman. I got to know her overthe past three years in her role as Special Adviser to: Minister of Health & Leader of GovernmentBusiness: Western Cape Government.As a group we have had a number of interactions with her and all of us have been immeasurablyimpressed by her attitude and enthusiasm for her role as ambassador for the Western Capegovernment. In our interactions over the years, I have come to know Amanda as an extra-ordinary woman who is professional, dedicated, passionate and extremely hard-working.I first met Amanda early in 2010 when we approached the Western Cape Department of Healthwith a proposal for the establishment of a PPI in the Eden district with respect to the treatmentof cancer patients. Since then through 2012, Amanda has been an instrumental party to thesuccess of establishing a pilot project in 2011 which was recently extended for another two-yearperiod.As part of the process to move from a concept discussed in face-to-face meetings to a moreformal proposal to that could be considered by the WC Department of Health, it often wasnecessary to bounce ideas off Amanda to get her point of view. She always found the time tocomment on draft documentation, replying to email requests and often made excellentinnovative suggestions to improve or augment our thinking.Amanda is passionate about patient care in general and towards the well-being of the populationof the Western Cape in particular. This was evident in the energetic and positive way sheparticipated in a brainstorming discussion about reaching the cancer community in smallertowns outside of Cape Town by offering chemotherapy services through a mobile clinic initiative.I have experienced Amanda as great problem-solver and her ability to connect appropriateparties to each other to allow a project to move forward is highly commendable.Yours sincerelyDr Leon GouwsCEO: ICON
