KZN Frontline Hero: Pieter Beck – Nurse at St Augustine’s hospital

Pieter Beck is a nurse at St Augustine's hospital. He is a cancer survivor and is still going to work every day at the hospital to do his part.


East Coast Drive is on a mission to recognise our frontline heroes in KZN, those people who are considered an essential service and are not able to safely tuck themselves away at home like the rest of us.

Listen to the podcast to hear more.

Pieter Beck is an amazing person who always has his patients and colleagues' well-being at heart.

"He is one of the most dedicated nurses I have ever come across. He would go straight to work from radiation and take care of his patients," his friend Yvonne says.

Even though his immune system is not as strong as it could be, he has still been going to work with a smile on his face, risking his well-being to help in the efforts to sanitise and disinfect the hospital.

Pieter, from the whole of South Africa, we thank you for the work you do to keep this country afloat and alive. You are a true Frontline Hero. Thank you for taking the time to speak to us on East Coast Drive.

You’ll find them in the hospitals, on the front lines, in the grocery stores and even at your front door, delivering your essentials. They might not be wearing capes, but these Frontline Heroes are going above-and-beyond every single day of lockdown. 

That’s why PURA Soda & East Coast Radio are looking for you to tell us about your unsung heroes who are making a difference and helping people to live a little PURA during lockdown. 

Just email [email protected] and they could win a refreshing PURA Soda hamper.
