Clinic extends working hours

In a statement released by the metro, this is meant to broaden access to health services to all residents.

Ekurhuleni spokesperson Themba Gadebe says not everyone has the privilege to take a day off from work to visit a clinic.

“The provision of extended service hours is part of the metro’s strategy to reduce the burden of long waiting hours at clinics.

“This will also improve access to primary health care.

“Five more clinics are earmarked in future to be added to those that operate for 24 hours and 12 hours a day.

“The construction of additional 10 state-of-the-art healthcare facilities is already in the planning phase to increase accessibility.

“There currently are 94 primary health care facilities in Ekurhuleni,” he says.

Gadebe says the services offered at the 24-hour and 12-hour facilities include, but are not limited to, child healthcare services, immunisation, maternal health, management of acute and chronic illnesses, mental health service, as well as HIV counselling and testing.

“These extended hour facilities also render allied health services such as rehabilitation services, dental health and maternity services, where there is a midwife obstetric unit on site,” he says.

In Kwatsaduza, the KwaThema Community Health Centre will be offering 24-hour services.

On Saturdays from 8am to 2pm the following clinics will be open: Duduza Clinic, Geluksdal Clinic, Springs Clinic and Tsakane Clinic.
