The aim of this study was to explore and describe the perceptions of registered nurses regarding the factors that influence service delivery in expansion programmes in a primary health care setting. A qualitative approach was used to conduct this study. Purposive sampling methods were used to select participants from the registered nurses who had been working in the clinics for more than two years and had been exposed to the expansion programmes in the clinics. The researcher collected data by means of focus group interviews, conducted in a neutral setting. Data were analysed,according to the Tesch method of data analysis, by the researcher and an independent co-coder. Categories, sub-categories and themes were identified. The categories that form the basis of the discussion are: disabling factors, enabling factors, client related factors, service related factors and solutions of problems. It was recommended that the integration and coordination of programmes at provincial level should be planned in conjunction with the training. The regional information system should introduce an electronic recordkeeping system, which links all clinics to one database, allowing these clinics to monitor clients who shop around and move between clinics. Training in expansion programmes should be continually conducted in the region in the form of in-service training.
